Deep and sonorous

Listen to some Bach and let your cares evaporate….it’s not the same person as in the photographs but still…..

Yesterday I was incredibly fortunate to be attending a recital and this young man was the double bass player with a string ensemble.  The light was really difficult in the church for photos, and I couldn’t use a tripod, but I couldn’t resist trying as I found him to be so photogenic.  As were his brothers and mother.  Yes, a quintet all from the one family.  Not only is the family highly talented, but they play with heart and soul.  It’s a long time since I’ve had the opportunity to watch a string ensemble, and my parched heart was replenished by their amazing music.

I wished I could have been at their previous performance, written about HERE  

One can only be grateful for small mercies….  I’m still hearing their music in my heart.♥

  1. Just beautiful. And how wonderful to find a family playing together. The family band is a great bluegrass tradition here, and gospel, too – but this is rather special. Thanks for sharing it. (And what a beautiful setting!)

    • Glad you like it Linda. The church is getting it’s own post soon, as there was a special reason for having the concert – let’s say it’s connected to raising the roof 🙂

  2. It is intriguing watching people make music live. Over the weekend, I was able to enjoy a band from Northcote High School playing in support of a school production which my nieces were participating in. The band were very cool, talented dudes who obviously enjoyed their work.

    • Sounds a wonderful evening for you and your family Margaret. I agree it’s intriguing watching people make music live, but it’s also interesting to be on the stage and watch the reactions of the audience 🙂 Music brings us to a meeting point.
