The last time I played any Faure I was 15.

With the high fi and my Janos Starker recording at my left,

I’d play my cello for a few measures, lift the needle, scratch it back,

and play the measures again.

At my audition, the judges said my interpretation was (strangely) remarkable,

but at All State I was way out-classed:

other cellists played Bach at breaks,

but me and the trombone player

made out in the warm up room.


(I found the old record. No wonder I had such a soaring style and melting tone!)

  1. This is WONDERFUL. My last attempt at music was singing in the community chorus for a holiday concert. Little did I know that one needed to read music.
    Keep writing.
