Another piece of art by Lila.
On the fourth of April 2012 I recorded a piece of piano music whilst figuring out how the technical part of creating a podcast worked. Tried to upload, failed, got hung up in cookery, bedtime stories and some more education and one day later dailypianopieces.com was bourn.
Today I arrived home rather late (it’s actually tomorrow) and I really can’t touch the piano without waking up the neighbours, my children and my wife. I was envolved in a fundraiser tonight for the wonderful and very talented Susanne Büchner who got herself into the Royal Academy of Music in London and is working very hard to make her dream come true.
It was an evening full of music, beautiful songs, excellent performers and a wide array of food and beverages.
If you would like to help a true talent along click here and Susanne will be forever grateful!
Thank you for listening.
Never Letting Go
After thoroughly enjoying the musical theatre play from our first year students tonight, I intended to sneak into the theatre and do my daily thingy, only to find out that everything had already been locked down and shut tight.
What to do?
I can’t leave you emptyhanded, so I present you with an oldy, with vocals.
In 2008 I collaborated with Daniel Cohen to write a musical about the Bijlmerdisaster of 1992, where an airoplane crashed into an appartmentbuilding in the suburbs of Amsterdam.
The play evolved around a gospelchoir who had their rehearsal space in that very building and the lives of the people surrounding them.
Todays piece is a recording of the finale of that show.
Lyrics by Daniel Cohen, music by moi.
Tomorrow more piano playing.
I did compose a couple of songs today for an event which takes place later this year in Bodegraven. I shall keep you posted on that part.
But for now, sit back and enjoy the heavenly choir.
Thank you for listening!
