Empty House Boogie

I went home yesterday and it was mad. While my parents are away the hall is being redecorated and Steve, the decorator, is currently right between the get rid of old decorations and the do new decorations stage of things. There’s scaffolding on the stairs to allow him to reach the roof and there’s dust everywhere.


I went in and removed the dust sheet from the piano and then the music I played echoed around the whole house because the acoustics were so good, what with there being no furniture. I don’t know if anyone has seen ‘48 preludes and fugues’ when it’s been on the BBC, basically a guy wearing a suit and sunglasses strolls into a cathederal, suit jacket slung over his shoulder, sits down at the organ and plays some Bach, gets up without saying anything and leaves. If I had a video camera and cameraman and could play the Chopin I’m learning I’d love to do the same trick. Alas for unfulfilled ambition.
