Reasons why I might feel a little down today…
1. I’m practising in F minor which according to Christian Schubart’s “Ideen zu einer Aesthetik der Tonkunst (1806)” means “Deep depression, funereal lament, groans of misery and longing for the grave.”
2. I’m playing a good deal of Philip Glass who, according to director Errol Morris, “creates a feeling of existential dread better than anyone else I know of”. Argh.
3. It’s a slightly grey day but a little humid and not properly, deliciously cold so… meh.
