A lovely Monday interlude

Every dull November 14th morning,

should start with a live performance
of Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata in G minor
in the comfort of your own home.

Today would have been my dad's birthday.
He had a good ear but no formal tuition
and played the old Broadwood upright from memory
with big crashing octave chords in the bass for added oomph.

Here his youngest grandson entertained us in similar fashion
about eighteen years ago.

  1. I become so envious when you tell us about the musical interludes you have at home.
