HERITAGE, Chapter 4/5 – Recital

Sitting at that white grand piano, I realized that my past experiences in business life were not very helpful to me. It also didn’t matter much that I have studied those 8 pieces over and over.

Anjelika Akbar sat on a chair next to the piano.

My drama made itself visible right in the middle of the first piece. I could see the sweat drops falling from the tip of my nose towards my legs one by one.☺

Ms. Akbar waited for me to finish the 8 tracks with very few comments. She only encouraged me with words such as “nice” in between the pieces.

When I finished, she said, “It’s a shame you haven’t studied music. The pieces sound good, but I’ll ask you to send me their scores.” 2 days later I sent her the following text:

“You will find attached the scores of two of the songs I played. At the end of our conversation, you said that you’ll decide whether to advise me or not after looking at the scores. If you agree, my suggestion for you is to start with one piece and see how it goes. [...] If you are not satisfied with the work, we can always end this cooperation.”

To be continued…
