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

Today was the day indeed!  Anne ( Cellist ) and Arnaud ( Violinist ) arrived from Nice at 10am. Both are members of Nice Philharmonic .We set to work straight away and for the first time I could hear what I had created.

This was a new experience for me because I have not written for Violin or Cello Solo Instrument before   Viola Yes ( Le Chant de Venus )....Orchestral Strings, yes..  I learned alot!!

 

 To my surprise however, I had not written much that was ' unplayable'....a Miracle indeed!!! We changed a couple of chords and by that I mean some Double ,Triple Stopping which I already had doubts about anyway...that's about it. ( Double, Triple Stopping is playing two or three notes at a time )

 What was so wonderful was the Spirit of Cooperation,the desire to discover the most Beautiful Interpretation we could and the Wonderful Sound they achieved (even of fiendishly difficult passages) after we had all settled in and worked at it....It was a Privilege for me !

 We discussed the possibility of a Concerto with only two movements and although all the old ' Rules' are often ignored these days, We all felt it would benefit from a middle movement.....Ooh La La!!!  ' Courage ' someone said ' and pointed towards the Land'....They just didn't say where the Land is...!!! I have made a start...after a small glass of Whisky. Have a lovely Evening all.
