On Patrick Street, silence weaves between pavement cracks,
surrenders to white lines we are told to stand behind.

“Listening to Hans Otte The Book of Sounds; the first of the three concerts, each contemplative composition reminded me of a vignette and not surprising to read that they were greatly influenced by Eastern meditation. It felt as if significant moments in life’s mercurial waters ran through my veins as if a gentle pulse to which I surrendered before regaining equilibrium. The accompaniment; the creaking barge, lapping of waves and sporadic toot of a passing cargo ferry in a pitch perfect A flat. I imagined notes, shaped like October leaves move with the tide as if migratory birds along the East River, past Williamsburg to Long Island Sound and I remembered how beautiful small things can be. Wonderful concert reviews from New York Classical Review “smooth as flowing water, with a great evenness of tone and rhythm…” and Limelight “… his touch light as a falling leaf.”
Thrilled to see my photograph of pianist Ivan Ilić in the Czech music magazine časopis Harmonie. This was taken at The Hugh Lane, Dublin at his concert 29th Sept 2019 and part of a six page interview of Ivan by Dina Šnejdarová
