ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Daria van den Bercken - Pianist
Daria van den Bercken has played piano with major Dutch orchestras, and performed many a recital in her country’s famed concert halls. But her larger vision is to bring classical music to the masses.

Why you should listen

Pianist Daria van den Bercken makes classical music lovers — and those who had no idea that they appreciated this kind of music — listen to classic composers with fresh ears. She has played with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra and the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, and is a regular guest at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. But it’s bringing classic music to unexpected audiences where her passion engages.

While sick with the flu several years ago, Daria discovered the keyboard compositions of George Frideric Handel. She wanted to bring these beautiful works to the masses. With her project ‘Handel at the Piano,’ she played these pieces in unexpected places — even flying with her piano 25-feet over the audience at the Virada Cultural Festival in São Paulo, Brazil. Through a series of concerts, and an album, she asked audiences to rethink Handel.

Daria’s latest project is 'Keys to Mozart,' an effort to breathe new life into Mozart’s piano works. She is preparing to record an album for Sony Classical and will play a series of concerts too.

109829
2115
02:03

02:31
of being存在 totally完全 in awe威严 of the music音乐,
33
139700
3127
02:34
and I had not felt that in a long time.
34
142827
3780
对我来说,这感觉真的是久违了。
02:38
It might威力 be easier更轻松 to relate涉及 to this when you hear it.
35
146607
4153
当你们听到这支曲子,你们更能理解我的感受。
02:42

03:18
And I turned转身 the page and what came来了 next下一个

明媚的忧伤和满满的能量。
04:07
And I consider考虑 these two elements分子 to be

我认为这是人类情感中至关重要的两种元素。
04:09
vital重要 human人的 expressions表达式.
49
237337
2803
纯粹的音乐让你深深地体会到这种情感。
04:12
And the purity纯度 of the music音乐 makes品牌 you hear it
50
240140

04:14
very effectively有效.
51
242815
3432
04:19
I've given特定 a lot of children's儿童 concerts音乐会
52
247893
2340
我曾给很多七八岁的小朋友演奏音乐,
04:22
for children孩子 of seven and eight years年份 old,
53
250233
3138
04:25
and whatever随你 I play, whether是否 it's Bach过独身生活, Beethoven贝多芬,
54
253371
3814
无论我演奏的是谁音乐,巴赫,贝多芬,甚至斯托克豪森,
04:29
even Stockhausen豪森,
55
257185
1575
04:30
or some jazzy爵士 music音乐,
56
258760
2992
或是爵士乐,
04:33
they are open打开 to hear it,
57
261752
2149
他们都能打开心扉去聆听,而且真的非常愿意去聆听,
04:35
really willing愿意 to listen,
58
263901
1287
他们觉得这样做很自然。
04:37
and they are comfortable自在 doing so.
59
265188
3528
04:40
And when classes come in
60
268716
1534
当我给稍大一些的小朋友演奏音乐,如十一二岁,
04:42
with children孩子 who are just a few少数 years年份 older旧的,
61
270250
3449
04:45
11, 12, I felt that I sometimes有时 already已经 had trouble麻烦
62
273699
4848
我觉得有些难以达到那种效果了。
04:50
in reaching到达 them like that.
63
278547
2093
04:52
The complexity复杂 of the music音乐 does become成为 an issue问题,
64
280640
3667
音乐难以理解是一个因素,
04:56
and actually其实 the opinions意见 of others其他
65
284307
3833
他们开始在意其他人,如父母、朋友、媒体的意见事实上也是一个因素。
05:00
parents父母, friends朋友, media媒体 — they start开始 to count计数.
66
288140
4683
05:04
But the young年轻 ones那些, they don't question
67
292823
2508
但年轻一点的孩子不会质疑内心的想法。
05:07
their own拥有 opinion意见.
68
295331
3341
05:10
They are in this constant不变 state of wonder奇迹,
69
298672
2992
他们一直在好奇、探索的状态中,
05:13
and I do firmly牢牢 believe that we can keep listening
70
301664
3690
而且我坚信,我们也可以像七岁小朋友那样聆听,
05:17
like these seven-year-old七十岁 children孩子,
71
305354
2284
05:19
even when growing生长 up.
72
307638
2474
尽管我们已经长大了。
05:22
And that is why I have played发挥
73
310112
2149
这就是我为何不只是在音乐厅里演奏,
05:24
not only in the concert音乐会 hall大厅
74
312261
2340
05:26
but also on the street, online线上, in the air空气:
75
314601
4329
也在马路上、网上、空中演奏的原因:
05:30
to feel that state of wonder奇迹,
76
318930
2567
让人们感受那种好奇、探索,
05:33
to truly listen,
77
321497
2182
真正地聆听,
05:35
and to listen without prejudice偏见.
78
323679
3544
心无旁骛地去欣赏。
05:39
And I would like to invite邀请 you
79
327223
