PeterT Posted April 21, 2008 Share Posted April 21, 2008 My interpretation of "virtuosity" is "trying to play the right notes." For virtuosity, "trying" isn't enough... "succeeding" is required. "Succeeding?" I can only aspire so far... Then I wouldn't consider you a virtuoso. Would you? Aspiring is not the same as doing. Even succeeding does not, necessarily, make you a virtuoso! It depends on the complexity of the music, and/or what you are trying to achieve with that music. However, most of us recognise, on our chosen instrument, when we do actually hear a virtuoso.
