Music occupies this sacred place in my life, always present, always ON. I can not claim I do know exactly how it all began, but I do recognise it was very early.
I remember a time when mp3s and even CDs were not yet available; and we were happy kids, myself and my brother, diligently waiting for the last Sunday each month, when a brand new album of a complete music vinyl collection was made available in the nearest kiosk. Booklets, biographies, illustrations, pictures and lyrics – the one motivation to accelerate our literacy skills!
From those general music booklets to opera was no longer than an eye blink: literally a pas de bourré, warming-up exercises, standard positions, and there was the ballerina to be in her daily routine.
From the ballet to the jazz world, not without a long meet and greet with the classics, contemporary and even folk dance. And the more I explored the world of dance, the more I got involved with the world of the concert music.
My time as a ballerina was unfortunately shortened by a never ending issue affecting the knees, but the passion about music… has never known a way back!
From promising ballerina to be I eventually became a newbie student in the engineering field. But have never left music behind! My classical guitar was an integral part of my student life, and we were all about of the triads, dissonances, supertonics and pianissimos that collectively constitute the world as I experience it. Then one day, I met the piano – my one passion ever since that one moment back a long time ago.
In the words of Albert Einstein, I literally ‘live all my daydreams in music’. This is my favourite theme, variations and arrangements. That is my reason to travel the world and explore concert halls, churches, museums, public spaces and spots that have been inspiring and influencing composers and soloists all around. Music rules my days, my reading, thoughts, ideas, cultural and social activities… and even influences the places I decide to live in.
This blog is my way of collecting and sharing my impressions, ideas and discoveries driven by this passion. This is a personal blog and no visitor’s information is either stored or explored in any way. This is a territory for friends of music. Be welcome!
