10:15 am
i'm going to leave you with a scene from suburban idaho where one family who kept a surprise almost a hundred goats had invaded their garden and were free sting on their plans so you at the top of the hour. i. go. to. germany with you any time any place. using music video. he had at the back of the squad. songs to sing along to download superstar combos
10:16 am
from super. to be. very good causes kind of into active exercises are you talking about that d w dot com slashdot actually landed on facebook in the uk still. in german for free but w. . my name is along with i love powder. and a mexican conductor. come with me and meet great musicians and friends from all over the world. we're now in cyrix switzerland with the wonderful tom hardy orchestra spirit and we're going to perform with a beautiful younger set ski a pianist i happened to know since he was fifteen years old and i feel very lucky to have seen grow. i can't wait to see and make music with him in the
10:17 am
orchestra. i'm really happy to be here with my friend all friends even though his very own identity skiing incredible pianist and wonderful friend i'm really happy to see you after so many years because when i met you. you were a baby baby baby we were talking about yourself that you were that i was a baby baby baby baby baby it was an infant and i remember you at our house in vermont playing our piano and everybody everybody just astonished by your talent how were you that like fifteen probably like fifteen and now you're twenty one
10:18 am
you're a very mature old standards and actually we joke about it but the truth is you are . and i was really amazed last night because we had a concert our first concert at the time holly orchestra circuit where we performed together mozart's ninth i've been a concert don't deny me and he. he played so beautifully and then after you played and then what was then going through those. from my reverie.
10:19 am
some very so for a twenty one year old pianist who who has the ability to play any piece in the records are like that like a spotter had to come out and play such a simple subtle. find little pieces on the corner that require so much finesse but at the same time could be played. you know almost by any pianists is not a very difficult technical to me who's speaking but that's not so much maturity i was really impressed because i thought wow and to go out in. front of the swiss army and play that us and them corps i thought that is incredible but don't you find that most sort of has the same elegance and challenging difficulty of
10:20 am
simplicity yes as this too and i think. often the the easiest things for a large orchestra like the time however. are the most challenging make the really go back to the roots from the very very very successful and making them. playing in a very pure and crisp style. and run out with. the right hand do you have different ideas for the younger before and you decide in the moment are you pretty much planned tonight is going to be this generally plan i'd like to i think i like the confidence of knowing what i'm going to perform it's very funny of course i can play a least a dozen pieces in the moment but i like having that feeling of actually. having
10:21 am
a plan because sometimes after the emotions of the concert after you finish playing the whole concerto you lose a little bit of focus it's almost. challenging to describe but when you get back on the stage and you still have to play after you've finished in a sense to really well to recapture the audience first of all because they've all been relaxed too for the concert to get them back in the moment so i like a slow on course for them and only slow but something that speaks from the heart and not from the thinkers because i've already played the main course and i don't want the longer to supercede it well yeah that's exactly. the point is not many young pianists understand that and they do yell showing off and to you know move your fingers as fast as possible and all this you know that i wrote is going around a lot and it's just so refreshing and mature to see you know that and. it's such a pleasure to work with but as you said i mean never think of but as everybody can
10:22 am
play quickly right and everybody can play simply so it's finding both or challenging in their own ways and you have to find her own voice no matter if you're playing some things for choice like very difficult and you find almost as no music because it's all quick and big and rich ones that you always have to play music in the same with the simple things it's not but yes i could learn it in a day or in two hours and play it in front of audiences about what you have to say and. for me and on course i wonder how did this for you it's always important to have a piece that has something to say and i'm able to play it every time i do it differently and to adjust it based on how i feel with the audience. on a. it
10:23 am
was like for you to tell me your story shared way of course but where did youngish anstey come from wow come at age twenty one one of the best tennis in the world and how come you're so wonderful and humble and i mean i think one of the key things is your mother who i know very well but sad tell me tell me your version of her i'm not going to dispute the motherhood part of the search out there but i have the father. come from a very good family family of money systems it was born and raised and i live in calgary which was not a musical epicenter in any means they're like me there was
10:24 am
a lot of parents exactly and it was developed. from whatever you find out for yourself and a love for music which i would actually say isn't necessarily a passion for music i love it i spend most of my life with it but i'm not crazy about it i mean i don't think you know every moment of both what i'm going to do on stage and what else they did or do you do it because it seemed like a pretty normal guy i didn't really like travelling and i may say this i mean it sounds ok whatever you like travelling but but i enjoy it in particular i don't really like going to the places where i'm playing and seeing those but i always even though i spend most of my time on the road anyway because i add to that during the year and i go to countries or places that it will add to that yes the wow and there are never i don't have time off all i want to do is sit at home and not even get into a car and just me being with my loved ones because it's a it's
10:25 am
a lot of just be whatever whole yes sometimes i realized after the fourth i'm like oh i haven't left home in four days i haven't even gone outside because it would be back saying i've been working i've been relaxing sleeping whatever i'm not. feeling. but to close what's next for you what where do you see. her life going here years now what's next where is your goal because there are such ok i'm going to flip the script question and say along with what's next for you would you like to do well i'm a mom and really to me that's i'll really that's what's next you know and that's a very simple and complex at the same time. way that i will follow to make sure
10:26 am
that my son grows beautifully and that's one part and as a musician i just love to grow and if i'm not. growing then it's like man i'm like i agree you can probably see part of it but you need to make a very. good copy of your rights i think i disagree. it's one of the border crossings answer for me because i am a person of the present i don't really think about the past or the future so much i mean i plan of course i have if you know what i'd like to do but not so much as far as dreaming of or goals where i'd like to play even the repertory i had a planned out for the next two years and that's about as far as i need to think would you like to be a father yes one day hopefully i care because i remember when when i was i was hearing each i might have my teacher kind of kids that are really wise man tell me what do you want to do to be why do you want to be in your life write it in a piece of paper and i wrote the best conductor in the world. and i thought he
10:27 am
would leave it back and read it to the obviously i said really so you don't want to be a mother you don't want to be a good mexican a good citizen i was good daughter yes of course i want all of them does this not work and so she made me write and rewrite and rewrite this this phrase until it made sense for everything i do and so that you can find something with which you have to eat. no matter what you do as long as you stay within that idea and it doesn't have to be because the best pianists in the world which apparently already are very close to being but there is no such thing well the course here is like and those not life as you were saying life is big with both your parents and making home wherever you are that's it and they're wonderful concerts and they are even better but so i think we agree on that goods i'm happy that not all came out of business not all of them but not enough that's why we're friends and i really look forward to growing side by side could go over here with you because i'm going to
10:28 am
