Scariest moments

Most of us in the business enjoy presenting in front of an audience. It's in the blood.

It tests our mental and spatial faculties and keeps us on our toes.
We enjoy sensing the mood of the crowd and wooing them to our content.

So why is a piano recital to a live audience for the first time so much more unnerving? Why do the hands shake, the legs tense and the mind go blank?

Thankfully, my audience on Sunday night in the Boltons were fellow musicians like me! And they were very forgiving of my interpretation of Chopin's prelude. Wonderful in parts, falling apart in others!

They say it takes 3 attempts to get to grips with a musical performance. It's worth it! A different sort of adrenalin rush.
