Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

GORDES - Michel Dalberto

Date: 23rd July 2013

The Roque d'Anteron Festival Hall cannot accommodate all the activities so many take place around the area.  One of these concerts was a piano recital by Michel Dalberto to be given at Gordes, a town perching on a hillside topped by a fortified castle.

It is a very expensive place to live as witnessed by the fact that one of the Estate Agents was Christies!!!

The setting was fabulous and complimented the wonderful concert given by Michel Dalberto. It seemed as though his choice of music became more dramatic as the light faded and pianist and Bechstein were dramatically lit against the rock wall.

At one point he played some Liszt and his fingers passed over the keys so rapidly they were a blur. Not only did he play like a dream but he was, in my opinion, 'drop dead gorgeous'. Life is not fair is it? To have all that talent and good looks as well!

I forgot to say that at the moment booking opened, my friends were sitting getting ready to pounce. Their devotion paid dividends - we had the 'best seats in the house' in the first row immediately opposite the pianist so that we could see his hands flying over the keys.

Sadly the concert brought to an end my wonderful week of culture, good food of course and being with friends.

Tomorrow it is Kent and the cat!
