Hanging out with an old friend

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.

About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
