  • Recently, I flew over a crowd of thousands of people in Brazil, playing music by George Frideric Handel

  • I also drove along the streets of Amsterdam, again playing music by this same composer.

  • Let's take a look.

  • I live there on the third floor.

  • All this was a real magical experience for hundreds of reasons.

  • Now you may ask, why have I done these things?

  • They're not really typical for a musician's day-to-day life.

  • Well, I did it because I fell in love with the music and I wanted to share it with as many people as possible.

  • It started a couple of years ago.

  • I was sitting at home on the couch with the flu and browsing the Internet a little,

  • when I found out that Handel had written works for the keyboard.

  • Well, I was surprised. I did not know this.

  • So I downloaded the sheet music and started playing.

  • And what happened next was that I entered this state of pure, unprejudiced amazement.

  • It was an experience of being totally in awe of the music, and I had not felt that in a long time.

  • It might be easier to relate to this when you hear it.

  • The first piece that I played through started like this.

  • Well this sounds very melancholic, doesn't it?

  • And I turned the page and what came next was this.

  • Well, this sounds very energetic, doesn't it?

  • So within a couple of minutes, and the piece isn't even finished yet,

  • I experienced two very contrasting characters: beautiful melancholy and sheer energy.

  • And I consider these two elements to be vital human expressions.

  • And the purity of the music makes you hear it very effectively.

  • I've given a lot of children's concerts for children of seven and eight years old,

  • and whatever I play, whether it's Bach, Beethoven, even Stockhausen, or some jazzy music,

  • they are open to hear it, really willing to listen, and they are comfortable doing so

  • And when classes come in with children who are just a few years older, 11, 12,

  • I felt that I sometimes already had trouble in reaching them like that.

  • The complexity of the music does become an issue,

  • and actually the opinions of othersparents, friends, mediathey start to count

  • But the young ones, they don't question their own opinion

  • They are in this constant state of wonder,

  • and I do firmly believe that we can keep listening like these seven-year-old children

  • even when growing up.

  • And that is why I have played not only in the concert hall but also on the street, online, in the air,

  • to feel that state of wonder, to truly listen, and to listen without prejudice.

  • And I would like to invite you to do so now.

  • Thank you.
