Music From Nan's Porch
In 2009 I had a summer concert series on my front porch. Heather Broadbent organized the music, and Andrea Knott joined her on the cello.
This particular piece is a favorite of my father's. He first discovered it featured in the Aubrey/Maturin novel series by Patrick O'Brian. In the movie "Master and Commander," inspired by the O'Brian series, there is a lovely scene of the Surprise sailing away, and I'm sure this is the image evoked every time Dad hears it. I know it springs instantly to mind for me, but now it's become hopelessly muddled with a lovely evening on my front porch spent with family and friends listening to wonderfully talented musicians. Trust me, I'm not complaining.
Thanks for stopping by!
