Performing a piece can be compared to meditation and a piece to prayer.
As single letters form words, and words clauses, so phrases form lines and the latter form the whole composition. Words ordered in a certain thought give rhythm to breath, then again breath provides concentration and gateway into trance.
Saying a prayer is not only about words. What has enormous significance is intentions and spirituality, strength of will, that is personality, and visualization, that is imagination.
Without these three elements, you can’s speak about true music
The one that opens and transforms the soul
Without these three elements you can’t speak about music
As a prayer to the wall
A cluster of pretty words with no meaning and aim
Pure manipulation for sham
That the heart won’t hear or understand
