21 at last! 😉
Oh, and look who decided to show up to the party! 🙂
I share my birthday with two other famous composers: Peter Maxwell Davies and Antonín Dvořák. The Davies coincidence is cool, because he wrote one of my very favorite pieces, Eight Songs for a Mad King. The sad thing is, my CD of it got sucked into the ether during one of my moves… ah, the peregrine, vagabond life of the musician… And there’s no youtube of it, can you believe it? Well, it’s really cool, you’ll just have to take my word for it!
I’m sad to report that I have a bunch of errands to run today, but the bright side is that McDoc has the day off, so I’m sure he and I will find time to go do something fun to celebrate.
