Today, as I drive around in my truck buying the ingredients for the feasts I am preparing for my elderly parents in the their northern house, I am listening to the first edits of the Vivaldi Concerti that I recorded last summer.
Exciting and painful! The concerti are so hard. The players are so great. The first edit fills me with the conflicting desires to have a nap or to practise with renewed enthusiasm.
Maybe I'll just stare into the middle distance.
