  • (Piano)

  • (Applause)

  • Thank you.

  • (Applause)

  • Thank you.

  • It's funny to me but some people actually say

  • that classical music is slow and way too long,

  • but for me, I feel exactly the opposite.

  • I think that classical music is fun, beautiful and exciting

  • because it has the power to move people,

  • even helping them feel emotions

  • they haven't felt in a really long time.

  • I've been a classical musician for the last ten years

  • since I began playing the piano when I was four.

  • (Laughter)

  • (Applause)

  • Thank you.

  • Music is my passion

  • and it´s like air -

  • I can´t live without it

  • and it´s such an extreme love

  • that, if I'm not playing music,

  • I'm thinking about it all the time.

  • When I sit down to play,

  • I just let the music and the notes sing.

  • Have you ever noticed that the same piece

  • can sound completely different

  • when it is played by different pianists?

  • That's because each musician

  • interprets the music that the composer wrote

  • in their own way,

  • and adds their personalities and styles to every piece they play.

  • And every note can be played in almost a billion ways.

  • I would like to try something new for fun

  • to show you that the same piece can sound completely different

  • even if you play it with different emotions.

  • For example,

  • I would like to play a little bit of Mozart's A Major Sonata,

  • third movement,

  • better known as the Turkish March.

  • Many of you may recognize it.

  • (Piano)

  • (Applause)

  • Mozart wrote this piece

  • to make fun of the Turkish army

  • so that's why it's such a fun and silly piece,

  • but if I change the playfulness to happy,

  • it could sound like this:

  • (Piano)

  • Can you hear the happiness?

  • But if I play it like this:

  • (Piano)

  • You can hear and feel the sadness.

  • Or angry, like this:

  • (Piano)

  • (Applause)

  • It's so fun to change the mood of the piece.

  • Speaking of fun,

  • here's a piece I love

  • by the American composer, George Gershwin:

  • Prelude Number 1.

  • This piece really reminds me of the hustle and bustle

  • of a great big city like New York.

  • (Piano)

  • (Applause)

  • This piece makes the excitement of the city come to life, right?

  • A symphony orchestra conductor

  • once told me that every note is special,

  • and it´s so true.

  • I love that and I always try to remember that

  • when I sit down to play.

  • Last year I visited Tohoku in the north of Japan,

  • a place that was devastated by the tsunami in 2011.

  • I wanted to do something to help

  • and the best way that I could do it was with music.

  • While I was there

  • I visited three elementary schools

  • and played for the children and the adults

  • who suffered from this disaster.

  • I went to give the people

  • hope and strength through music,

  • but instead their courage made me stronger.

  • Since then my goal has been to become a pianist

  • who can help others with music.

  • I believe that music has power to give people hope

  • and to help them feel better.

  • To me, that´s the power of music.

  • Now, I would like to leave you with this fast and wild piece:

  • Chopin's Étude Opus 10 No. 4.

  • (Piano)

  • (Applause)

(Piano)
