Guitar Lesson

After hearing Starker play the ‘cello suites, I gave up playing them on guitar. The guitar is too weak, I thought.

Then I heard Gerwig play them on the lute and they were beautiful.

How can this be, I thought. The lute is weaker than the guitar.

Then I realized something. Gerwig wasn’t trying to match or compete with the ‘cello. Instead, he played the music to reveal what is beautiful about the lute.
