"You've got the words to change a nation
but you're biting your tounge
You've spent a life-time in silence
afraid you'll say something wrong
If no one ever hears it, how're we gonna learn your song?
So come on, come on
come on, come on"
These are the opening lyrics of the song that was played in the audition of the wonderful shadow performance group Attraction, which I talked about in the previous post. I really liked these lyrics, and I really do feel what she talks about: that we all of us, including me, have "the words to change a nation", but that we are all somehow holding ourselves back. Well, enough of that! Tomorrow, on Sunday afternoon, I am going to attend a discussion group regarding possible options to introduce a guaranteed income, and this is a part of my general ambition to dive into the maturation of our economy.
The day after this, I am going to give a new lunch concert at last. This time I will get back to some of the pieces and inspirations with which I started the whole series, about three years ago: to Chopin. I will play some of the pieces I played then, i.e. some of his Preludes op 28, but I will also play some other works. These include e.g. Fantasie-Impromptu and his wonderful Berceuse. As usual I will also talk a little about the pieces I am playing.
What: Lunch concert, piano with Gunnar Cedersund
When: Monday 25/11, 12.20-12.50
Where: Berzeliussalen, next to the HU library
Price: Free of charge!
Apart from this, I am also planning for a new TED evening. Preliminary date is December 3, a Tuesday.
