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

My dog and I left for Monaco at 5.30 yesterday afternoon and arrived after a deviation to avoid traffic around 7ish. We had a splendid evening with a good musical start .

 I was amazed to discover that so far I had not writtten anything unplayable!! Even the double stops I was so dubious about worked!!! It was of course, a rather incomplete experience without the Violinist ( Venus ), nevertheless I was able to form a good idea of the complete work. Don't forget I haven't heard it ' in the flesh' so to speak.

 

 I found Eliane ( the Cellist ) very willing and keen as well as very competent. I came away feeling that we could work together very welll.

 After the session, she produced some super wine, annd plates of good food....Nanette ( my Hunting Dog ...we do not hunt!! ) lay quietly throughout and as usual was a model of peace and calm.

We decided that the next session will be here at my home with the Violinist, then it will be ready for editing and afterwards ..performance. Just to remind ourselves ,it's a ' Double Concerto'...i.e a Concerto for Violin and Cello Solo with Orchestra.

 At the cafe this morning...although extremely tired, I sketched a few more bars of orchestration and am now 5 bars from the end!! Aaaah....! THEN, I can start thinking, feeling the next work and what's that?....who knows? Have a lovely evening all xx
