Yes, but where’s the Music?

Sewing machine Bach, blazing Mozart, rigid Chopin? That’s music?

Correct interpretation as per the college ┬áprofessor, all the right dynamics music according to the competition judge, good fingers, memory, power, That’s music? Absolutely not.

Make me cry, scare me, make me laugh, want to dance, sing, make love, kill or commit suicide.

That’s the soul of music and no one has to agree with your skills because brilliant or not, they serve the emotional content of the music and will not be noticed.

Give me mediocre piano playing and music over a brilliant facility any day. Of course, there are those few greats who have both.
