Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The Trouble Clef - Morning Music [by Lera Auerbach] :


Lera, I just listened to "Chimera." Amazing!

Feeling suspicious of all early-risers, I am secretly envious of their routines, their inner-clocks.
Lera, Of necessity, I'm an early riser though I know my internal clock is that of the nocturnal. Early risers are seen by so many as being more virtuous than others but getting up early just means going to bed early, nothing more. I think it has to do with this mantra that got drilled into us as kids. "Early to bed, early to rise / makes a man healthy wealthy and wise." Does it really? Thanks for this

cum laude .....what a "magical, mystical tour"- necessities and the blues

"Life is a violation of sleep." There are those days -- and nights when the dream is more intensely real than the furniture in the room and the curtains protecting the darkness.

Baritone tenor
alto soprano
the opening bars
you see the notes
the conductor's hair is flying
it's opening day

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
