The Violin Channel recently caught up with Emerson String Quartet violinist Philip Setzer at the Aspen Music Festival and School – where he discussed the paramount importance of understanding the external context in which a work has been composed.

“Technique is extremely important … but in terms of your own education, it's more important to be curious – it's that curiosity that will take you to another level,” Philip has told The Violin Channel.
