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

There seems to be an error with the player !

If you recall, yesterday we spoke about the Fifth...the interval of a Fifth that is. Mercury rules no 5 and is about Communication.

I thought about it most of yesterday and in the evening sketched a few bars. Immediately I began, the title came to me ...as above. So, now we have or will have 3 movements to the Double Concerto. Does that matter? No. not really but for some reason it bothered me...it felt incomplete.

 

Just out of sheer curiosity I had a look at my Ephemeris to see where Mercury was positioned yesterday...Bless me!! there it was in Aquarius at about 19 degrees more or less conjunct the Sun!! (That is together with the Sun) and furthermore this conjunction is what is known as sextile to my Venus and Mars ( which are Conjunct in my Natal chart ) in Sagittarius. Sextile is auspicious and friendly.So there is a strong impulse to communicate coming from the Mercury/Sun position in an Air Sign to the Venus/Mars aspect in a Fire Sign .  

 When I looked again at my sketch this morning, I saw it consisted of 5 bars....yes five bars!. Coincidence...undoubtedly but then again what is that? I am writing basically totally in Fifths. This of course is not entirely possible in either Violin or Cello playing, so I am also working out compromises without too much disturbance of the basic idea .

 When I go to the rehearsal sometime next week I can ask questions and get the soloists to try out my more adventurous ideas!

 Well all very fine Jil ...No more talking, get on with the work!! Have a lovely evening all.
