一些日子以前Koji開始來店裏喝虹吸(塞風壺)咖啡,然後現在如果有在店附近,也會進來和傳統的瑪琪朵(macchiato)。

我們後來聊開了,我才知道他是一個在音樂界鼎鼎有名的鋼琴家!!!

Koji現在在鹽湖城居住,教琴(大學及獨立學院),和演奏;然後上星期他邀請我和阿強去他教琴的其中一個學校(Gifted Music School) 聼他和其他音樂老師辦的一場小型音樂會。

第一次聽到Koji現場演奏,感動和震撼的感覺,讓我都快哭了... (!)

我文字能力不足,無法將當晚的曲目和感想一一列出,但阿強協助我記錄下以下兩段:

 "Koji performed two sets of music. The first set was from Spanish composer(s) and written for guitar. Koji arranged it for piano. Much of the piece was centered around the feeling of flowing and cascading water. The final movement he played on this set was so full of sadness and loss that you could feel his emotion with every note. It was hard not to cry.

His second set was a quartet from Mozart, and again, Koji arranged this for piano. There was one main movement followed by a series of interesting variations. This piece was a world premiere. It appeared to be a very challenging piece to play, and I think this is what excited Koji about arranging and playing it. Mozart's musical progression and style is much more mainstream than the often obscure and complicated Russian composers that Koji often plays. But if you closed your eyes, you could easily hear the different parts all being voiced by a single piano. As a quartet it was one thing, but as an arrangement for piano, it was beyond brilliant. Truly a magical performance."

好精彩的演奏,我坐在最前排的位子,看著Koji專注的演奏,聼著他指尖彈出的音符,心裏面有一波一波暖暖的感動。

這場演奏會還有其他的音樂老師演奏;我很開心知道鹽湖城這邊有那麽多位傑出的音樂家。

演奏會後,覺得自己不管做什麽,都要更努力。
