He played the Moonlight sonata in the sense of a very powerful sound. The most amazing part of this piano sonata is its dynamic changes throughout the whole music. The emotion went from quiet and somber notes like the moonlight to strong and powerful notes like Danube river. We seemed to see no more difficulties in life, sorrow, worries and unhappiness but a magical and beautiful world

He played the Moonlight sonata in the sense of a very powerful sound. The most amazing part of this piano sonata is its dynamic changes throughout the whole music. The emotion went from quiet and sombre notes like the moonlight to strong and powerful notes like Danube river. We seemed to see no more difficulties in life, sorrow, worries and unhappiness but a magical and beautiful world.
