This is IT—this magic moment—the sweet reward—a moment of triumph and gratitude for all that has come before–the years of study, the arduous tours, the lack of sleep, the endless meetings with fans, time away from home and family, the devotion to his craft all coming together in the culmination of his dream.
This photo captures the very essence of Piero, showing his joy in the fulfillment of his quest to be one with the audience–to give them the experience of being onewith the music. They show their appreciation with applause and standing ovations–he is showing his by the expression of pure joy and gratitudeon his face–opening his arms to receive them in love and thanksfor their overwhelming acceptance of his offering. He is radiant with the joyof having brought the audience to this level of appreciation.
