Desperate desire pushes on.

I was watching a documentary program on the Chopin Competition, and something really bothered me, so I did some research and found an interesting article, which I'll quote first.

We'll see.

The ease of access to the performances of great musicians has been a great temptation for young performers to move things along quickly in order to gain public acceptance.

To get to the heart of the matter, instead of exploring the composer's life and work extensively, they try to use the interpretations that already exist.

So you think of using shortcuts to achieve success.

This desperate desire to win applause in a short period of time makes many young interpreters average, predictable, and standard.

The performance has no personality, does not stay in your memory for long, and does not touch your emotions.

I call this "second-hand interpretation".

A truly sensitive and musically interested artist avoids listening to other people's recordings and seeks inspiration in what the composer has written and in his own emotional and mental responses that arise from it.

Some of our individuality is inborn.

We can all develop our individuality through life experiences, but we can also develop it further by absorbing the experiences of other great artists, reading books, visiting museums, and watching good movies.

Many young people are so busy trying to "perfect" their playing that they forget that it is only a physical part of the art.

I don't have time to devote to the mental part. That's why they get into imitating other recordings. ......

We'll see.

What I was wondering was how I could evaluate the output on a topic where sensitivity was so important.

Another article also said that the students will be evaluated comprehensively on their ability to interpret, compose, imagine, and express themselves.

To begin with, the theme is limited to constructing a performance using only Chopin's music.

If we drop the current artificial intelligence AI here, it will play the best one based on the analysis of each judge's preference, the composition of the songs evaluated in the past, and the way they are played.

How will it be evaluated? If you ask me if I would like to listen to it, I personally would not be very interested.

Is it because I'm not used to it, or because I think I'm missing something?

I think this is an important part of creating services and products.
