Hm. Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony is on the radio. I played that in a summer camp summer before 7th grade. I hated that camp, but I loved the music we got to play. It’s amazing, but I remember every single note of that piece (or at least the cello part). We played that piece for one week. I guess I practiced a ridiculous amount at that camp because I had nothing else to do. Everyone else at that camp was really mean to me because I wanted to do math, and they didn’t find that an acceptable thing to do. So I practiced all the time. I guess that’s why I remember the music so well. I wish I had kept playing in an orchestra in 11th and 12th grade. Next year…


About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.
