Just as Mediocrity helps to balance out and enhance Excellence (see the post In Praise of Mediocrity) , musical works and musical performance are enriched by the workings of pairs of opposites.
Here are some interesting pairs. See how you can use them as you develop musical understanding and as you apply them to create great renditions of musical works.
Intellectual- artistic, expressive
Away from the tonality-towards the tonality
Think of other pairs of opposites and how they can be present in your music making. They will help make your performances varied and interesting.
