The Telegraph just posted this amazing video of a concert pianist named Maria João Pires who realized during the concert that the orchestra was playing the wrong piece. What was she to do except panic? Well, play the other piece by memory of course! And she did!
I’ve been listening to a lot of “classical” music lately (only putting that in quotes because I’m sure I’m doing the sub-genre all wrong). Anyway, it’s been very soothing after a full day of going out and about in NYC. Sometimes you come home, put this on, and relax and all is good.
I wish I had this growing up.
