in consequence of the missive, A puzzling remark by Darcy., penned by Srirup
I have listened to some of the world's greatest guitar players, indeed musicians as a whole. Technical ability is far from being only what inspires admiration in the listeners, for me. Warmth, "soul", sometimes some indefinable magic inspires favouritism, ie the performer does it, and not just his/her ability to play an instrument well. I saw one old guy play and sing one time. He had a battered old guitar and a voice like pouring gravel out of a tin bucket. He still brought out that indefinable quality that made it a privelege to hear him.
I think this is what Darcy alludes to in his statement. Lizzie's playing strikes a chord (pardon the unintended pun) in him that others may fail to do. Maybe it also adds to his already awakening interest in her as a person, maybe she has a modesty in her playing opposite to that of Mary, for instance, or the showy style of the Bingley sisters. We aren't told any of this but left to interpret it our own way. This is how I see the comments.
