Comment from Vitali Seitz :
“I married into a very musical family in which almost every gathering is enriched with musical performances. Such was the case at my mother-in-law's fiftieth birthday: some guests sat at tables in the garden, while others moved to the terrace to listen to the music being played inside. The summer evening air was filled with the strains of Tchaikovsky, beautifully played by my wife, a young pianist, and her uncle, a cellist. I took a series of photographs in the background, looking for interesting interpretations of this musical scene. At the end of the concert I was standing behind the artists and I took the opportunity of focusing on the audience as they applauded, counterbalancing the musicians in the foreground. Then suddenly it was over, everyone returned to their tables, seemingly forgetting what they had just experienced. All that remains of this fleeting moment of enchantment is the image. To me, this is the real power of photography.”
