Hi everyone, just to report that I’ve been rather poorly with flu since last week! I’m happy to report that I am now up and dressed and easing myself back into my music by doing some early morning piano practise!
The music I’m finding so inspiring at the moment is the theme from the film ‘The Piano’, by Michael Nyman. ‘The Heart asks Pleasure First’ is such a beautiful piece of music, and when played properly it flows effortlessly! It’s the kind of music you can cheat at and play how you think it should sound, which, up until now is exactly how I’ve always played it! But not any longer! During Lent, I’ve decided to practise it properly, and when it’s perfected I will play it for you! My piano hero is Valentina Lisitsa, and while I was in bed feeling ill, I kept watching her play this on YouTube! Music does really cheer you when you are feeling down. Anyway, thank you all for your amazing support and I’ll share some music with you soon. Lots of love xxxxx
