Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
In July 2019, I participated in the Share Your Music Challenge – one song every day that month. At the end of the month, I breathed a sigh of relief that I had managed to make it through the challenge and was ready to hang up my air guitar. One of my Canadian readers urged me to keep going and so my Friday Song Day and a musical exchange began. This interaction brought me great joy.
These days I have fewer Canadian readers – death, old age, illness, pandemics, caring responsibilities, other commitments, etc, have intervened. For several weeks I have been concerned for my musical buddies, Sid and J. Today I have chosen a musical piece for them both and their loved ones. The piece is Ravel’s Miroirs III – Une Barque sur L’Ocean, performed by renowned Canadian pianist André Laplante.
This beautiful piece and performance is a gift to us all. I know Sid and J would approve. Enjoy.
Let kindness and compassion be your legacy, ladies and gentlemen.
Love to you all.
