What would happen if you’d discover one day that the concerto you thought you’d have to play (and you prepared for) is different from the one you have to play?
Below are some tense moments when Maria João Pires discovers that she rehearsed the wrong Mozart concerto. But since she’s a great master, she pulls herself together and performs the entire concerto from memory. Watch the supportive conductor, Riccardo Chailly, inspiring a ready-to-quit soloist to find the inner resources to go on and succeed in an ambiguous and insecure situation. The background music adds an extra eerie cinematographic effect.
Here is the full concerto for your enjoyment:
During our lifetime, we might suddenly find ourselves in a situation that is totally unexpected, in which we might have to prove that we are great masters in what we know and what we do.
Think about this!
