The Calm Under the Storm
When a pianist is performing a very quick piece....or prestissimo, they must remain calm and completely trust that all their slow practicing is grounded into their musical soul.
It's like life. When there is chaos, confusion, doubt and fear in ones life it spills out into the world.
A calm soul remains so even when life throws one challenges.
It's like the oceans or rivers. Under the waves, it is always calm and serene.
