“Having the potential to be good is not the same as actually being good, but a symphony is always good.” ~M
*I got to go to a symphony last night. The theme was a Scottish fantasy, which featured Brahms, Symphony No. 2 in D major. This picture was taken before everyone was actually there, but you can see still several musicians tuning their instruments. It was quite a lovely night and I was lucky enough to get free tickets to the event.
I love the way a song can create a story in one’s mind as it plays. Is there a song that describes you? Which song pulls your heart straight out of your chest, and unleashes your soul? There’s only ever been one song like this for me. It frees my spirit and touches my heart every time I listen to it. The first time I heard it, I was at a piano concert and it brought a flood of tears to my eyes. It’s so beautiful, and one day I hope to learn to play it on the piano. Here it is…
Clair De Lune (Which means Moonlight in French) Please, as you listen, close your eyes and just feel it… truly magical… ❤️ xo
Wanted to share my favorite pianist with all of you. His name is Alpin Hong. The first song listed below will take you back a few years. The second one, shows Alpin’s heart for helping children appreciate music. He has dedicated his life to making music fun for students. He is absolutely brilliant and loves to put on a good show! The last song is my favorite song, Claire de lune, by Claude Debussy. I play a little bit and I have a 13 yr. old daughter who loves to compose her own piano music. How many of you enjoy piano music or play piano?
Here’s a link to Alpin Hong’s website. Enjoy!
Also, want to say thanks to my friend Raymond for giving me the idea to share these in the first place. You can visit his blog here.
