Representing both young groups and longstanding favorites, they all have insights into the joys and hardships of expressing themselves as part of a tight-knit ensemble. How they practice, how they come to consensus, their performance secrets and anxieties, what moves and inspires them – all this and more comes to life in this series of revealing interviews with player and charter Strings magazine contributor Edith Eisler.
