When you play an instrument, one of the things you need to be especially careful about is attitude.
Because the performer’s body is also a part of the instrument to make it sound, the posture also has a great influence on the sound.
There is a traditionally correct attitude for playing the piano when playing the piano and for playing the violin when playing the violin. The attitude is not for the good looks and the ease of playing from the audience, but all for the better sounding.
If it compares, it is the same thing as the “type” of traditional Japanese performing arts such as Noh and Kabuki. All traditionally inherited types have meaning and are passed from parent to child, from child to grandchild. The basic theory to convey the mind to the audience for more advanced performance is inlaid. Even if you do something new that will open up the times, you need to learn the basic types first.
The attitude in classical music is also a type, and it is something that must be worn by the eyes of each instrument / song.
Technology is essential for playing an instrument. However, even if you improve only the technology, you will never be able to perform wonderfully to impress the audience.
What does playing a musical instrument mean playing music? Is it an act with a purpose?
I think that “exchange of life energy”.
When people who are physically and physically fulfilling and very energetic play the piano, those who are listening will also become well. That is because the performers’ mind is transmitted to the listener through music.
The music contains the composer’s energy. It is the mission of the performer to capture the energy of the composer and play the instrument to transfer the energy to the space and the audience.
When you touch true art, you can be struck by lightning and feel happy as if it were rising to the heavens through the works of art such as music and painting, by composers and painters It is because you receive energy. The bodies of composers and painters do not already exist in this world, but they can provide many people with their life energy. That is true art. That’s why art is great and wonderful.
So, when you play an instrument, you want to be aware of “your own mind” and how to convey the mind of the composer who made the music, not just looking at technology alone. Then, you will know how to play the music by yourself.
