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 said that I needed to reflect on why some pages in the score I went to collect were actually upside down!! A really stupid ' mistake'

. It's just dawned on me after a lengthy conversation with a good friend , who when I moved into my present home ( an appartment with a small garden ), agreed to house my Piano for me. It's a Bluthner Grand, a beautiful instrument but I was worried about the neighbours!!! Ha ha!!

As a result I sent it to Paris 13 years ago. I did not realise at the time what I was doing!!

 

During this evening's conversation, this same friend said she thought I should have it back....in a flash I saw ' an upside down ' situation!! ( like the pages in the score).; I will explain briefly.

All the music I have composed since the day the Piano left me has been based on sketches made when the instrument was here. I have no more sketches left! I have an electronic instrument but there is absolutely no resonance or  sonority in that imitation. No new creative ideas have ever come from playing that instrument.

I have agreed that the Bluthner should be brought  back and I'm surprised at how nervous I feel about it!! Neighbours? Well.. they were all sad I sent it away except those directly next door but then they have turned out to be the noisiest in the whole building!!

I am actually due to move house, so that's timely as it'll be here for me to take with me!!

I think I'm now going to celebrate with a good glass of red wine!!! please join me!! have a lovely evening all xx
