What do you think this common mistake is? Compare these two videos below and see whether you can figure it out, then check your answer with the one posted in the comments.


I love this piece. Did you feel the emotion as well? Did the piece move you? Clearly, it would be a real shame if performing arts venues were to close down…

… or would it?
