Piano and a Man

Posted by C Moon on December 20, 2007

It seems that in playing piano, we need more than just two hands. Last Saturday, I went to a solo piano concert by Jeongwon Kim (also known as Julius Kim). He is a quite popular pianist in Korea, appearing in a movie called “For Horowitz.” I won’t say that his sounds and skills were the best I’ve ever heard. (Personally, I thought he made a mistake in arranging the pieces.) But I was definitely moved by his passion. He hopped, ducked, paused, and startled to the wave of sounds, closing his eyes. His whole body followed the movement of his fingers. Piano seemed to be an instrument played not by fingers alone but by the whole body and inner passion.
