Vortex discussion 93 – Should music be ‘played’ or ‘performed’?

Does one ‘play’ or ‘perform’ music?

The psychologist Donald Winnicott wrote: “Play more than anything else makes the individual feel that life is worth living.” But does that potentially lower the status of the music by giving it this description. Perhaps the more formal “perform” is better? Because otherwise perhaps it would encourage too much flippancy.

The discussion is led by Oliver Weindling, Vortex director, and is open to all – musicians or music lovers, who would want to join in more actively or want to listen.


Oliver Weindling is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
