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

In the article below, I referred to the roles of the Cello and Violin in the Double Concerto in a gender orientated sense! I was a bit surprised that I had done that as it's not how I conceived the Concerto originally. so here comes a correction.

' Venus Conjunct Mars ' sings of a Love Story indeed but not with the usual perception of a Love relationship within which there is a defined role according to gender. In fact Venus conjunct Mars plays out something very different.

I had an X ray on thursday and the cast was taken off my left arm on friday....3 weeks! instead of 6!! as predicted by surgeon. I left him a very puzzled man.!

 I immediately tried Piano playing and was surprised at how much was possible. However re.education ( whatever that is! ) is recommended. In the meantime, The Magnificat went by the board temporarily because of ideas about a second movement for the Concerto ' Venus Conjunct Mars ' already nearly completed with a first and third movt in place.. '

Sorry about the space where there should be a picture and please excuse lack of capitals ...due to one handed writing ( left arm in plaster hand to shoulder ).

 unfortunately i now have no webmaster so there may be a delay before there is any more progress here. keep an eye on it though as i begin to try to work things out myself.

 

plans i had to start recital work ( now my concert bluthner piano is back with me ) with a string player, are now on hold to my great frustration. i fell over a root last week and broke my left arm...it's in plaster from hand to shoulder, which is why there are no capitals in this one handed text...excuse me!!

however, in 4 to 6 weeks, i will have this monstrosity removed and can start to do my own physiotherapy and re introduce the arm to the piano.....something to look forward to. in the meantime, i am mastering techniques i thought were only possible with two hands!! like washing up :-)  have a good day!!

 

Requiem Discs will soon be for Sale from this site ...I Hope!!!! Watch out for ' Contact ' .
