貝多芬的鋼琴 - 古德明

In Bonn, the home of Beethoven has been converted into a memorial museum. In one of the rooms, roped off from curious hands, is the piano upon which Beethoven composed many of his great works.
A Michigan girl, visiting the shrine with a party of American students, looked upon the instrument with awe and asked the guard, with the additional persuader of a generous tip, if she might play on it for a moment. The permission was granted and she sat at the piano and strummed out a few bars of the "Moonlight Sonata".
Departing, she remarked to the guard, "I suppose all the great pianists who have come here at one time or another have played on it." The guard said, "No, Miss, Paderewski* was here two years ago but said he was not worthy to touch it."
波昂的貝多芬故居現已改為紀念博物館,其中一個房間裏,有鋼琴,用繩圍繞,以免參觀者觸摸。貝多芬在這琴上譜寫了不少傑作。
一群美國學生到這聖地參觀,同行有一密西根州少女。她望着那鋼琴,心生崇敬,問守衞員可不可讓她稍彈一下,並慷慨奉贈能動人心的小費,於是獲准坐在琴前,彈了《月光》奏鳴曲幾小節。
她離去時,跟那守衞員說:「歷來到訪的大鋼琴家,都彈過這鋼琴吧。」那守衞員回答:「小姐,這話不對。兩年前,帕岱瑞夫斯基*蒞臨,卻自言碰碰這鋼琴都不配。」
*帕岱瑞夫斯基是波蘭鋼琴家,卒於一九四一年。
