Today is a day of avoidance for me as far as the internet is concerned, although I “cheated” a bit and took a glance at Twitter. That only verified that I should stay away at least for today. (If you see something up on Facebook, Google+ or anything else those are merely auto-posts.) And so I am only posting music which touches my soul, working on photos, teaching four of my dear students, and attending a rehearsal, albeit about as briefly as one can attend a rehearsal (I only play about 15 minutes of it!).

Arvo Pärt: Spiegel im Speigel
Sally Maer, cello and Sally Whitwell, piano

…. and a white rose … for peace.
White Rose (II), 12.7.16

Joyce DiDonato – Richard Strauss – Morgen

And tomorrow the sun will shine again
and on the way that I will go,
she will again unite us, the happy ones
amidst this sun-breathing earth,
and to the beach, wide, wave-blue
will we still and slowly descend
silently we will look in each other’s eyes
and upon us will sink the mute silence of happiness

The Detroit Symphony concert is happening now. View and listen here! I can’t think of anything better to do on this rainy January 20 morning.
