Music Making

I have been spending lots of hours trying to make my fingers move faster on this piece. It is the Ibert Flute Concerto and our orchestra is hosting a Young Musicians Concerto Concert this Saturday night.

We have seven concertos to play and seven very talented young soloists. The Ibert is difficult but very exciting and you can hear the 1st movement here.

Along with Ibert, we are playing some Mozart, Beethoven, Telemann, Vivaldi, Haydn,
Saint Saens and Weber.

Read all about the programme for Saturday here.

I have been thinking about comfort food to get myself through all the rehearsals and today I have a big pot of vegetable soup simmering on the stove, and these just came out of the oven.

There are lots of recipes for flapjacks out there but this one from Yarnstorm works every time, and now I am going to take a break from "TOO many notes "and have a cup of tea and a flapjack.

Sally Ann, I think anyone that can play classical music on the piano are wonderfully talented and awe-inspiring. Wish I could play like that...I wrote about my desire to play on my blog last month. Your soup and flapjacks sound really yummy for this almost fall day.

The flapjacks look very tempting Sally Ann, I'll have to try out this recipe for my boys as they love them.

I hope the concert goes well.

How I would to hear you play! The photos were just lovely. You have such a gift of composition and light.

I must try the flapjacks. I had the book from Yarnstorm and my daughter and son-in-law were visiting and loved it and I couldn't hlep but give it to them.
