Enjoyed a great show at Merrill Auditorium in Portland tonight. Peter Serkin preformed an amazing collection of music that to my ear, represented just how far you can take the craft – This was at the limit of what a human and a piano is capable of. Now, I am simple and untrained in music – The Chopin and Debussy were easy for me to get my brain around – to some extent. The Polonaise was amazing – rich and complex while being accessible to my ear. The Debussy was a real treat. How could something so simple be so complex.
