Lament

In his mid-sixties, my father decided he wanted to learn the clarinet, and in particular, Mozart's clarinet concerto. It was a piece of music he could rarely listen to without misty eyes.
Dad died in March, and today would have been his 79th birthday.

This is for you, Dad, and for all you who have lost somebody special.

....................................................................................................

These the words I used on-air this morning to introduce the adagio movement of Mozart's clarinet concerto.

PS Dad did learn to play the concerto.
Sort of.
It was terrible.

Richard Good for him, never to late to learn, I hope I show similar spirit when I'm sixty (if I get that far).

kware That's a great memory and kudos to your father for trying to learn something new! My father's 59th birthday would've been on the 1st (of June)

jet28 What a wonderful inspiration! Maybe it's not too late to take up the saxaphone after all :-) I can;t help but wonder what they're all looking at?
