MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

I moved from a Villa where I could work on my Bluthner Grand Piano at any time of day or night 13 years ago. When I arrived in this appartment ( which is very nice as appartments go ), My Piano came with me but after a short period, (although no one complained) , I felt uncomfortable about the possibility of disturbing the neighbours!! As a result, a dear friend of mine housed it in her Chateau near Paris and I continued my work on an electronic horror with a full sized keyboard.

 

The result has been something of a disaster..... I have found it increasingly distasteful to hear this sound let alone create new works. Oh yes, there have been two Concertos written since then but with increasing difficulty.

Now, I have had my warning from the Universe! Two Hospital events and increasing poor health plus ' Hearing displacement between top G and C ' have pointed me in the opposite direction, hopefully not too late!!

The Bluthner is COMING BACK next week!!!! I am both Joyful and Tearful . To a non Musician , it may seem ridiculous but I don't know if I will dare touch it and what will happen if I do?

Strangely ..or perhaps not so strangely , the year after the Piano left I broke the left forearm and the year after that , the right wrist. The surgeon said ' unless I put pins in there you will never play again ' ...I refused and discharged myself the same day.

I was fortunate to have a good plasterer and began the next day to ' play' the digital instrument. Each day, I played...at first hardly able to move my hand. After two months, I had developed some of my original facility. Next year, I am aiming to play Recitals with Instrumentalists again.

 I would invite the Surgeon to attend if I could remember his name!! :) Bless him x
