Man, oh man! My trio rehearsed for the first time yesterday and it was a gas. Chamber music is such fun. My cohorts are very fine musicians and seemed to enjoy themselves as much as me.
We went through a couple of Mozart trio movements and then the entire first movement of Mendelssohn’s D minor trio (link to an online streaming recording, I hope!). We took it a tad slower than this recording. But Dawn the cellist recognized the piece and felt that our tempo was actually pretty good for a final choice.
I was walking on air the rest of the day.
After rehearsal I met with my boss, always something I look forward to. I’m so glad I work for this person.
After I got home I received a call from my Mom.
Two of her old friends (George Jordan and Hilda Neff) were sitting in her room and would like to see me. I knew they were coming, but not when. I drove over and hugged them and chatted them up a bit.
They looked great. Hilda even said she reads this blog. Heh. Hi Hilda!
They took Mom for a bite to eat and I said good by and came home and made supper for Eileen and me.
Life is good.
