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.

A Haunting in Venice


Given a preference l much prefer seeing films in a cinema. There is something special about seeing them on a big screen. 

Last week l saw A Haunting in Venice. Having said how much l like seeing films in the cinema l don't actually see many films these days. I like quirky, interesting films and am not a fan of the franchise films, but, if you are, good luck to you and l hope you enjoy them.

A Haunting in Venice is based, loosely, on an Agatha Christie novel called Hallowe'en Party. The setting has been changed from the book and l must say the scenery shot in Venice was stunning. I've only been to Venice once and it was grey, wet and miserable when we were there.

I'm not completely sold on Kenneth Branagh as Poirot. He also directs the film. It is a clever story and although the film has changed so much of it, it is still a good story told. The cast perform well together and it was worth seeing.
