What is it that we all seek from life, from music? Is it meaning, purpose, something as fundamental as survival or illusive as faith? An old Zen master would hit us on the head with his existential stick, i.e. – just shut up and listen! Listen? But how do we listen with all these noises in our heads? Be still….
For example, when one truly listens to Rachmaninov’s 3rd Piano Concerto openly with their heart, mind and soul – BAM! The world drops, allow the music to embrace as you ride the wave, all is illuminated.
Now what was it we were seeking all along? ☼
