As far as Asian/Hindustani classical goes – we always have individual performers who improvise in every performance. No performance of a musician is same. It is because they carry the music in their heart. When they enter a house or an auditorium – music enters with them. Not the notes and the grammar of it.
Its quite a contrast in western world music – where music goes mostly by the rules. If one note is wrong, the audience knows. In Hindustani classical/folk songs/ Asian culture – we have more mature audience which reacts to the impromptu performances in a positive way.
Its a contrast in another way – In an orchestra there are many players – and there is a conductor who manages all the notes not to clash with one another. Its a group effort. A more organized effort to put the things in place. But we are still far more individualistic and while in fact we have a denser population than the West.
Music is like a painting. No artist can make the same painting again.
Music is very subjective. It cant be taught like a physical training.
