Colors, images and music

Tonight listened and looked at Hélène Grimaud, who performed the second piano concerto by Brahms in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. She plays flexible and yet powerful. It's a fascinating conversation between the piano and the orchestra. The conductor, Markus Stenz, forms the connection. He has an exuberant expression that made me see the music in colors. My thoughts wander around and are focused simultaneously. Music brings the picture thinking on a higher level. Synaesthesia, the experience of all the senses together.
