A concert is never just a concert. The atmosphere in the theatre, when the audience sits down and waits in the shadow for the concert to begin; the musicians going to their music stands, and the great wait for the moment the curtains will open. But what’s in the head of a musician while he plays? There are those who think of Beethoven, who curses the piano lessons, and who, from the audience, wants to go to the sea or continues to prefer the Stones than the classic. Music does these and other spells - so yes, going to a concert is always a great idea.
