Neighborhood violinist is music to my ears

Interpretation of dreams

Interpretation of dreams

Few things make my ears hurt more than listening to an untrained violinist. It’s insufferable. On the contrary, hearing a skilled violinist is a delight, perhaps second only to an expert piano player.

I listened to an accomplished violinist by accident recently. I was working. My window was open. It was raining. And then it started: a faint viola. A good one. It played for a solid hour without hitting a single stray note. It was the best live performance I’ve heard in a while.

I wonder if the player even knew their was an audience. I hope they practice again soon.
