She took a deep breath and settled her hands on the keys, ready to play. She began the intro to Chopin's Nocturne in E-flat Major, the middle of the three nocturnes in the set. It was one of her favorite pieces, despite it being a classical piece (and being a very, very famous piece); she loved adding her own ornaments to each section as the music continued. She loved having the rhythmic freedom given to her by the senza tempo. She loved everything about the piece, and watching her fingers fly in graceful leaps, growing increasingly ornamented, telling the story of the piece.
She always learned the history behind the pieces that she played, mostly because she liked to put as much emotion into the pieces as she could, but also because she enjoyed learning about the history. This particular Nocturne was dedicated to Marie Pleyel. Amadea could almost feel the deep feelings Chopin must have felt when writing this piece. She loved that moment when she finally connected with the music and everything completely disappeared. She could just focus on playing every note with the emotion that she felt. She played the last notes and closed her eyes, lifting her fingers off the keys, breathing heavily, feeling very satisfied.
A human. Being.
