"I will sit through an entire night of someone who doesn't play well and can't sing as long as they are entertaining. There is a difference between entertainment and performance. I've sat through pristine and clinical piano work that was performed perfectly. But I wasn't entertained. And I have heard a haphazard and slapdashed evening of key board work that had me on the floor in tears. I ws entertained.
It all comes down to the quality of the performer, not the quality of the performance at to whether the show is entertaining."
Aye, I think you have is spot on here. Whatever the 'art' is, however brilliantly technically executed a performance may be, it still does not assure any communication of charisma, charm, warmth, and all those other 'human' elements which are essential to making something deeply *pleasureable* to partake of.
