I know, I know, I am the worst person in the world. Right now my life is far too hectic - I just haven't got the time to sit at the piano. That kind of sounds like "I haven't got the time to breathe" to a part of me, but I really don't. There is too much going on at Casa Caela for such indulgences... So here's one I prepared earlier - yes, I am tur…
 
I haven't been able to update here as many times as I would've liked; too busy, too few excuses, and so on. Two of my Christmas concerts have been; the big charity deal was a phenomenal success and we raised far more than we could have ever hoped for. Anyway, a Merry Christmas to you. I hope you have a wonderful one, and a happy new year. C.…
 
It's now ... count them ... 41 sleeps until Christmas, and although I'm not going full pelt on the Christmassy music, I'm stepping in that direction. This is the Winter Fairy (Act1, No16) from Sergei Prokofiev's ballet Cinderella. The recording quality is not quite as good as it could be - Ellie changed a few settings and I have no idea how to put …
 
Another weekend, another daughter's birthday; my little one will be one tomorrow.

I love Chopin very much indeed, and like to think that Composition for Ginger Baby has a vague Chopinesque…

She's very young and this was the first time she'd played in front of anyone aside from family, and she did very well. (I would say that - I'm her mother!) Anyway, a little post for a little piece. More later... C PS - How awesome am I?…
 
Thanks to my dearest darlings Rory and Trevor (always happy to indulge a pianist), I am rewiring this blog as PIANO BLOG ONLY. Non-pianists are more than welcome, of course, but aside from the occasional Ellie piece, you may find it deathly boring. If you like the piano and / or classical music, well it's not deathly boring at all! Rory, my self-st…
 
Apologies; it has taken me two months to update my podcast, instead of the two weeks I had intended. I have probably forgotten how to do this - my list of instructions from Rory and Trevor is very dog-eared and some points which were clear as day back in August are now confusing. Who knows if I can get this to work?! Anyway, this is a piece of Tcha…
