PBS recently aired a September 2008 performance of George Gershwin’s music featuring the Nashville Symphony. The show’s closing piece was “Rhapsody in Blue,” perhaps Gershwin’s most well-known piece. I’ve enjoyed the song for a long time but never had the opportunity to “see” it performed and videoed to such great effect.
It was incredible to SEE guest soloist Kevin Cole’s performance – his hands were up and down the keyboard in such commanding fashion. In the video excerpt below, you get some sense of the wonder of his performance.
For today’s challenge – while we usually think of listening to music, in this case, being able to watch music was as impressive as the audio experience.
For other sensory experiences you encounter, identify a different dimension to begin to experience them: Maybe listening to a dog being petted or feeling the texture of the ingredients in a home cooked meal? You decide and come to some new senses of your own.
