A Focus on Liang Wang
Here is a link to a New York Times' video, "A Wind Among the Reeds". This is a rather interesting video, which focuses on Liang Wang, the principal oboist of the NY Phil. In it, he discusses the unique challenges he has faced as a musician who has emigrated from China, particularly as a wind player (the first of Chinese nationality in the New York Phil.).
Also of interest may be his comment regarding what happens as he looks in the mirror everyday: He asks himself to on a daily basis to "do something creative with every piece [he is] playing". This is obviously relevant to all of us, who as musicians can easily become preoccupied with mechanics and technique of playing our instruments.
