An interview with concert pianist Elena Piccione.
Question 1 (Q1)
How would your introduction sound ?
How would you present yourself ?
Answer 1 (A1)
I'm a musician. Or at least, that's what I've been doing for 20 years. I'm just a human being with a very strong desire of freedom and love, like everyone else, I suppose.
I love nature, silence, writing. I wouldn't define these as hobbies but more as spiritual needs.
How would you describe music ?
Music is the most powerful and direct way to embrace the human soul, with all its facets and contrasts. A pure act of love.
What should be the title of this interview ?
Interview - Part 1
What is your interest in science ?
Music is part of the quadrivium, together with arithmetic, geometry and astronomy. Science is closely connected to music and I believe that a good knowledge of science can bring only good to music and vice versa.
How did you find your preferred instrument ?
By sheer chance. I come from Walt Disney's world as I became interested in playing the trumpet with his movie "The Aristocats". I was only 5 and I was too young to start playing that instrument, so I started with piano and I've never given up. Maybe my favourite instrument is violin and I love the warm sound of viola but I must say ... piano is pretty cool too! (Smile)
Would you like to interview me for a second story in my website ?
Well, yes. Sure! I read your intro on your website and would love to know more about you!
Please describe a typical day in your life. What is the structure ?
I don't have a typical day but I do have some "rituals". Coffee, think, do. Coffee, think, do. Coffee, think, do. On top of this, my motto: "Love as much as you can love and do as much as you can do, for those you love and for those who love you".
