When my children were young, I would often play the piano for hours. Mostly Mozart. I used to say Mozart was my best friend. We certainly spent a lot of time together. Last night I went to a concert featuring John Novacek playing Mozart’s piano Concerto no. 24 in C minor with Symphony Nova Scotia. I’ve never hear Mozart played with so much heart. I’ve spent some time today looking up and listening to Novacek on the net. It was a very inspiring performance last night. His interpretation of the music was unique and so genuine.
So now I’m thinking a lot about taking up again with my old friend. I would just have to give myself a time to play, schedule it into my day. That’s the only way I would do it. There tend to be too many distractions. I make sure I schedule, and protect, my painting time. I would just need to make the piano a priority again. Right now, it i still a thought.
