The worst thing you can have is a poorly drafted, ambiguous agreement that leads to years of litigation.

Instead of pressing hard with the bow, you press lightly and you go faster. That will affect the balance.

Steven is such an asset to this orchestra. Because he and I view so many aspects of music-making the same, it makes it easy for us. When I'm asking for a particular sound, he knows what I mean and he's able to communicate it technically to the string players. Steven has really helped me tremendously in our effort to make the Tucson Symphony strings sound like a major orchestra.
