    Thanks for the cultural moment, Bob. That was beautiful and restful. I grew up with classical music playing throughout the house. (Dad put speakers in every room.) It’s still my favorite genre!

    • You were lucky. I never heard classical music as a child, except in cartoon soundtracks and occasionally in commercials. (To this day I can’t hear the 1812 Overture without hearing the Quaker Oats commercial in my head.) I discovered classical music when I was in my teens, and my life was never the same afterwards. It felt like discovering a whole new world.

    You might appreciate this story (I hope I haven’t shared it here before!): When my brother and I were growing up and the music of Brahms, Mozart, and others wafted through our house, Dad would often ask, “Who composed this piece?” We rarely knew. Fast forward fifty-plus years. Dad was in a nursing home; my brother would often play classical music for him when we’d visit. One time, J. chose Grieg’s Piano Concerto #1. “Dad! I know this one!” I enthused, and proceeded to tell him. With perfect timing and a twinkle in his eye, he mischievously asked, “What key?” (Dad not only knew his classical composers, he was a master of the quip as well!)
