Ensemble Playing

Here's a short read on playing in a quartet. I've always felt that ensemble playing goes beyond the musician's individual responsibilities. While it is important that you know your music, understanding what others around you are playing allows you to listen a lot better. Something of this is also addressed in the Masterclass video I posted recently (Yo-Yo Ma Masterclass). At any rate, check out this short article and you may get some good pointers. Enjoy!
