I bid on a collection of music from a violinists estate. Close to 170 lbs. according to shipping estimates. As we say in Texas, “That’s a shitload.”
My dear violin teacher (and beloved friend) commented that this collection was somebody’s prized possession. Their Treasure. And I was lucky to have it.
Treasure. She’s absolutely right. Hidden in the piles of gold are gleaming gems of music. Part of the reason I started this journal was to document our exploration of this collection. The other part was so I could start doing something productive with my time online.
This was someone’s treasure that was lovingly amassed over a lifetime. I feel honored to have this collection and will make sure each piece of music is acknowledged, played and loved.
I did not know Mr. Madden in life, but through music we will know his spirit.
And we are starting this journey with Telemann Fantasia for solo violin No. 10. in D Major.
