Debussy plays Debussy | Clair de Lune (1913)

As some of you may know l am learning the piano. The student who's lesson is before mine is 10 years old, and, l was told this week that this sweet little girl started piano lessons at age 4. I'm quite a bit older than that. I wish l had started earlier but it's never too late and l love my lessons. This is the piece l want to be able to play. Debussy was a wonderful composer and Clair de Lune is such  beautiful, almost ethereal music. This rendition is by Debussy himself. What a treat.

It's starting

 

I am feeling very blessed. 

Here in Melbourne, Australia life has moved forward with Covid19 protocols. That means that things are opening up safely. I have bought 6 tickets for upcoming shows this year. There are at least 2 more that l know of and all this is before l have received brochures from the various Arts Centres.

I am expecting to have my temperature taken and will have to wear a mask. Not being a driver l wear a mask on public transport and also all day in my volunteer jobs.

I know that l am very lucky to be going to see shows again. So many countries are still struggling with Covid, and so much has been lost to the disease. I also feel for all the performers around the world who were suddenly without work and income.

I am going to see these shows with gratitude and the knowledge that l am helping the arts in Australia get back on track.
