My friend Amy and I played through three violin sonatas by Mozart yesterday (K. 395, 303 and 306). Dang this is cool music. It is mature Mozart. I performed from an ancient crumbling used copy of the piano part I own and printed up violin parts from the internet for Amy. I decided that today I will order us a new printed edition so that our parts will match. I’m planning on purchasing a Cliff Eisen edition if I can find it.
I ordered from Zingerman’s on Wednesday. I had a discount coupon that expired on April 30. I ordered olive oil, a loaf of bread and some cheese. It came yesterday. Over night, that’s pretty quick. I purchased another loaf of bread from Meijers and some cheese and that was our meal together last night. Elizabeth whipped up a salad. Mmmmm.
Today Elizabeth and Eileen are off to Whitehall to taxi Eileen’s Mom around. Elizabeth gets on a plane tomorrow. It has been delightful having her around.
Letters to the editor. I liked this one from VINCE CALDERHEAD in Nairobi, Kenya:
Dear America: Not that I expect to persuade you, but just so you know, most of the rest of the world regards your obsession with guns and executions as barbaric. Don’t say you weren’t told.
