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

At last it would seem that something ' gives' in an important situation....by important I mean the Premiere of ' Le Chant de Venus ' ( Viola concerto ) at Vence.

I must not give the wrong impression but I am heartened by the fact that after discussion with The Minister of Culture here , he agreed it for next year BUT on hearing the quote from the Delegate General of the Orchestra simply ruled it out as too expensive. At that point , I resolved to go to the Conseil Generale for assistance.

My good friend, Marco ( he is French ), is doing the negotiating  and we hope to meet Dr Frere ( Conseil Generale ) in September.....just the man I wanted to see because he once made a very complimentary comment about my Music.

One cannot assume success but I am a believer in ' positive expectation ' even if I am not very good at it at times!!!! :-) I will keep you informed, in the meantime you can hear an extract of the work as a piano and Viola version above played by the excellent violist Joel Soultanian ( Ensemble Orchestre de Paris ). Fingers crossed but not if you are a string player!!!
