Many listeners know the melancholy
of my person, of my music.
For me, it feels comfortable and natural.
Life is a mix of hope and sadness,
of looking back in doubt and longing for the best:
what did I do right or wrong,
what can I do for the better?
In my opinion it’s right to express these mixed feelings:
it feeds the sensitivity for life’s reality,
the clarity of the consciousness,
the acceptance of the unconsciousness.
I wish you all a very healthy New Year!

They arrived again, a few days ago,
just before New Year:
And like many winters before,
staring at winter’s first snowflakes,
I think of dancing entities.
Every snowflake or crystal is
completely unique in its appearance.

One of my favorite activities on my grandpiano:
Before constructing a composition,
it’s important to me to improvise first.
Going with the flow,
following an unknown and unexpected wave:
the best way to feel free.

What I like about playing piano is
the communication between both hands.
In this piece it’s clearly audible
how hands together form chords and voices
in the middle of the keyboard.
Let’s behave like both hands on a keyboard:
stay alert, communicate,
reach out and
let our hands meet and
perform a rich harmony.

Since a few weeks I’ve got
some serious troubles with my eyes.
Which was the reason of the lack of a PianoTweet
the day before yesterday and more days a few weeks ago.
It all started with a blurry view,
accompanied by black spots in my field of vision.
Then I had to undergo
an operation and a “correction” by laser beams.
Right now it’s “healing” time for my eyes,
meanwhile being patient about the final results.
The upcoming weeks, maybe months,
contain some advantages:
there’s an opportunity for musical inspiration,
because the world looks really different these days.
I have to take time
to plan pauses
So it will turn out to be a period
to respect and worship
the needs of my physical existence.

There are moments in everyone’s life
that the heart feels like bursting in pieces.
The owner of the heart cannot always explain why.
Only the feeling in itself might be
the cause and the reaon
at the same time.
I’m learning step by step
to be very present during those precious moments
that are there to reach for me and touch me.
