So, how has my life been going lately?
It has been filled with unpleasant occurrences, multitudinous problems, annoying inconveniences, and ongoing ailments. And those are the positive aspects.
I've been in a foul mood for a long time and I'm ready to bite asses and strangle necks. Come to think of it, I sometimes bite asses even when I'm in a good mood....
Mostly, I'd like to hibernate until spring.
My trio of cats are doing well. The 'possums are still around, always looking for a handout. Mysterious animals are still residing under my house. At least I presume they are animals.
Snow is predicted on Sunday. Last night I made (homemade) potato soup and it is delicious. I plan to make more this weekend.
What's this about Warsaw?
This is one of my old piano tapes that I've recently transferred to MP3.
The Warsaw Concerto isn't technically a concerto at all. It was a score written by Richard Addinsell for the 1941 British film Dangerous Moonlight.
This composition is originally for piano and orchestra. I performed it with a college orchestra when I was in my early twenties.
I liked the Warsaw Concerto so much, that I wrote my own transcription of it for piano solo. I recently found my old musical manuscript and can still play it .
The music in my video was recorded in Los Angeles when I was 22 years old.
Here's a glimpse of the original solo piano arrangement that I wrote.
I have no doubt that you're overwhelmed (*smile*)
Here's the recording I made in L.A. when I was 22.
Apologies for the poor audio quality.
