“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day.” - Vincent Van Gogh
The first day of Summer here in Melbourne was at first warm and sunny, with a change coming through in the afternoon that brought some rain. The night will be cooler and at least we shall sleep easier than the last couple of nights, which were very hot. As I look out the window, I can see the moon peeking between the clouds now and then. A piece of music immediately springs to mind…
Here it is: Gustav Mahler’s Adagietto from the Symphony No. 5, with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Georg Solti.
