A bit of musical thanks for Thanksgiving, by way of Grieg
As Robert and I head to Northern Virginia to celebrate Thanksgiving with my parental units, sister, nephew, cousin and a couple of our treasured friends, I wanted to thank all of you for checking out this blog. I'm always grateful for your responses and, occasionally, even for some of your retorts.
To convey my thanks, I thought a little music would be appropriate, and I remembered a tender keyboard work that just happens to be called
"Thanks." I get the impression few pianists bother learning Grieg's "Lyric Pieces" these days, perhaps considering them too slight or sticky. Pity. There are wonderful things here. I particularly love this item, which I enjoy playing whenever I have a few minutes at the piano. It's far from the best known of the "Lyric Pieces," but one of the most endearing, IMHO, and extra appropriate for Thanksgiving.
So have a great holiday, and please accept, courtesy of Grieg, my thanks for visiting this site:
