“A few years ago I had the good fortune to see and hear Chung Myung-whun conducting the orchestra of La Scala, in Milan, in that moment I realized that classical music can give you the strong emotions especially in the theater: hear or see it elsewhere is just a representation ... not magic.
My place was very close to the orchestra and it was almost possible to feel part: the screeching of the fingers on the strings of violins, the sound of the pages of the score in their turn, the breath of the wind, sighs, then glances between performer and conductor and, in the faces of the spectators, ecstasy mixed with kidnapping. Everything was hanging by a thread.
I do not remember the songs played, but apparently the single songs were not as important as the atmosphere created by them. In a concert I also love the silence, the initial and especially the final one, when you return to the reality and applaud gives you the certainty to be part of it. “
