Sometimes it happens, for whatever reason, that we cannot achieve everything we want to do. Well, many times. In some ocasions external factors are the cause of not realizing certain ideas, sometimes we don't have time, and sometimes that initial idea in our head simply has to mature and crystallize. Maybe we need days, weeks or months to create and realize those ideas. And the most important thing is that we have to feel the call to achieve something. It doesn't work without that spark.
So it happened that the #SadSunday posts, although I loved to work around them, just disappeared for a while. I don't know exactly why, I can just guess. Perhaps a combination of the situations mentioned above. But what is maybe more certain, that the urge to post sad music containing publication was not my priority.
However, that’s just a trap in the process of thinking because I was probably playing music that could have caused a feeling of sadness. It's not that I have always played only cheerful, bright sort of music, right? After all, it is very subjective how you feel while listening to some kind of music, and also, it is relative to how your audience will feel the music you perform. Maybe a beautiful tune also can cause tears in someone's eyes, and the saddest music can bring enjoyment, and after all, happiness, because that experience happened. What IS important is that your audience feels something, that you share those vibes on which the life of a musical composition depends and they catch them. Without that feature, music is not alive.
Two days ago, I finally felt that impulse to play and share music that can provoke that feeling of melancholy. The inspiration arrived right in my heart, and the idea of taking again on the SadSunday post warmed up my thoughts. What will the listeners feel, I don't know, it is relative :) However, you can let me know how did you feel this piece I play here. What was your reaction to this piece, The Poet Acts? The composer is Philip Glass, who wrote a large number of great pieces! This one appeared in the movie The Hours, and the piano arrangement I play here is done by Michael Riesman and Nico Muhly.
