Last week I was fortunately invited to ‘Friday Night is Music Night with Rainer Hersch‘. It was a last minute invite after attending a friend’s funeral and a musical escape was just what was needed.
The evening was being recorded to go out on Comic Relief night and it was a really entertaining evening and definitely one to listen to. The BBC orchestra impressed the audience with alternative renditions to the favourite classics and a normally more serious evening was really funny.
I have always found that music can lift the spirits and take us away from our worries and change our mood, equally a piece of music can transport us back in time and often make us reflect on memories, people, a time or a place.
Personally, it is a rare occasion to visit my house without music being played. Off to select something suitable to accompany today’s over flowing desk.
