It's such an immense pleasure to work on music preparing only and exclusively for concerts, not competitions. When one can finally focus and think only about the beauty of the music. When one can finally listen only to the voice of heart and soul. When one can finally forget about "What will the jury think, write, like and dislike", when one can finally forget about the impossible chase of being perfect and concentrate on being himself. When one can finally express freely everything that is inside the soul and share it with the audience. When the Love towards Music is eventually at first place and nothing else is important. This feeling is almost like escaping from the invisible cage, retrieving the freedom. I thought I always had this attitude, but that was not fully true. Now there is time to perform 100% from the heart, and only for people for whom it is important and special enough to come for the concert. This is exactly why I am the pianist. And although sometimes hard, this makes my life artistically complete and fulfilled.
