Victor’s Piano Solo


“Victor’s Piano Solo” – Victor Van Dort [Corpse Bride, 2005]

I love the encounter of love through music. You think you’re all alone and so you just play whatever comes to your fingers because you’re not there to impress anyone or boast what you can do. You play what is most comfortable and entertaining for yourself. At times like these, you are most yourself while still in the form of a musician. You can play the scales or just play random keys, but the music you create in that moment, is truly you.

But then, someone hears this part of you that they don’t get to hear often. They become entranced in your music. And for a rare moment, they don’t see just you as a musician and your ability; they see the part of you that is real through your music. Nothing fake for entertainment or a disguise to amuse. But your very thought, your every glance at the keys you play, your inner beauty of what you can do. And they’ll never be able to forget that brief moment of passion and peace in your eyes again.

  1. A beautifully written piece, and very insightful too. As someone who is recovering their piano fingers I know full well the difference from playing for others and caressing the ivories for your own soul. Incidentally, if you have and are able to share the sheet music for this, you will make ten fingers tingle with happiness 🙂
