Two Musicians

Watch this video of two musicians playing a two-violin arrangement of Mozart's sonata in C major K 296. They reach for their instruments, grab their arches. One look and they're off --the voices of the instruments mingle, each answering the other. One suggests a new direction, the other takes the challenge and ups the ante, and down the new path they go, frolicking in the cascades of sound. Together they weave a web of pure, exhilarating structure. The mathematics of Mozart!


One of these players is a professional violinist, the other a particle physicist. Can you tell which is which? How can you tell?

Este es un ejercicio complicado, sobre todo, porque mis conocimientos de física y música se limitan al del espectador. Ví el video dos veces y me concentré al lenguaje corporal de los dos violinistas. Creo que el hombre maduro está demasiado fijo, con los pies bien plantados en el piso, es decir, menos espontáneo. El hombre más jóven mueve su cuerpo al ritmo de la melodía en una secuencia que inicia en la mano derecha y se transmite por el instrumento hacia su cabeza y el cuerpo hasta los pies. Podría decir, que el "siente" la música, mientras que el otro, la "ejecuta".
Pero eso no impide que el uno o el otro sean físicos y toquen el violín muy bien. O que sean violinistas y entiendan muy bien la física. Oh, creo que ya me confundí. Tal vez debo preguntar: Qué tiene que ver la física de partículas con la música y las matemáticas de Mozart? Crees que es una pregunta muy ingenua?
Yo creo que el hombre joven es el violinista profesional y no necesita moverse tanto como David Garrett para demostrarlo.

Sip: el viejo es el físico. Se le nota que no tiene la misma soltura con el instrumento que el joven. Además, su sonido es mucho más apagado y menos expresivo y su afinación no es tan buena como la del joven. En el violinista se nota el efecto de un cerebro y unos músculos perfectamente ajustados para tocar.

Me alegra saber que acerté al identificar al músico profesional. Consulté la página del profesor Brian Foster, me pareció muy simpático porque tiene un currículo muy amplio: investigación, docencia, hobbys y además divulgación de la ciencia. Hay gente que le saca jugo al tiempo y siempre de la mejor manera. Saludos
