alaine this is lovely music. it's of a kind that i don't usually listen to but there are times and places where it could open a window for me. steven

Steven...nice of you to say so. I enjoy mostly all and, sometimes, even some that you post but I must say that this morning I put on some of my classical CDs and had to stop them as my taste has changed considerably! I'll always love anything Chopin though.

I love him so much! I saw where he and George Sand stayed in Valldemosa Mallorca this year,there was his piano and some notebooks etc. The view from the terrace was breathtaking .It was one of my pilgrimages . Such a sad life tho!If you look on my blog you can find some pictures I took of the visit.

Angela...lovely to hear from you. Chopin has been my favourite since a small girl. I went and read your post; what a wonderful holiday, I'd love to go there. Recently I've been looking up George Sand's books; I haven't read any, could you recommend one to start with?

Dear Alaine,
Apart from several things - This is really something we have in common, love this piano concert of Chopin so much, can't tell you!

Do you know that Hamburg's Ballet Master John Neumeier created in the early 1980s the 'Kameliendame' - 'Lady of the Camellias' as a ballet with this music of Chopin? I went to the premiere, it was breathtaking and I was in tears...
So, when ever I listen to the concert I have the scenes and dancers in mind as well.

Will probably write a post about it next year when our Camellias flowering.

And next time when I listen again to the music I'll think about you in Oz.
Greetings, karin

LaPouyette....Karin, I did know of the book (Camille), written by Alexandre Dumas fils but I didn't know about the ballet. I see that there is a DVD available, which I'll order, as I'm sure I'll never get to see the ballet! I can imagine that it would be very beautiful, the ballet and Chopin's music combined! I'd be in a mess of tears too! ax
