INDOLENCE ET INCISIVITE
(indolence and incisiveness )
I had my first thrills with piano music passion when I first heard this piece of d’éon called “118”. The inner world of this song seemed so good and beautiful to me, and the urge to reach it and get into it through learning, playing and testing became urgent.
Then my listening kinda developed itself and, maybe, my ear, although I don’t think that means something very important, and I was unconsciously directed towards the piano instrument itself, the vibrating one who lives next to you in its heaviness and which produces real sounds that go through you like the air you breath. Firstly Impressionism, minimalism and now to the doors of jazz I wander. At the same time, I discover, learn and shiver. This list airs some of my favorite piano songs.
