Gordon interviews Conservatory professors and distinguished alumni and asks them to explain the parallels between producing and listening to great music and the many other experiences we all have in our daily lives. By unveiling what goes on in the minds and practice rooms of great musicians, listeners are invited to hear that music making is a process common to what many of us feel and do all the time.
