Rick Hutt wrote:Not a guitar recital, but last year doing a vocal recital a young man, probably late teens - early twenties, mouthed "Dalla sua pace" from Don Giovanni, with me. So wierd. Obviously I didn't spend much time looking directly at him, but from time to time, i would check in and he was still at it.
Perhaps he was so taken with your performance that he couldn't help but sing along with you!
I was at a performance of the Aranjuez concerto with Pepe Romero playing and had slap myself to keep from singing along during the Adagio!
I almost could not help myself as I floated on every note he played and felt transcendent. It was just so moving. Sometimes, music does that to people. I kept the melody inside me so as not to disturb my neighbors at the concert, but if Pepe had looked at me, he probably would have seen me in my transcendent state! Good thing I was too far from him and he was way too busy playing!
When the sun shines, bask.
Classical Guitar forever!
