Christmas is approaching and it is strange this year. No concerts, no fairs, no restaurants..the list goes on. Let’s hope that next year will bring a normal Christmas!

I was at the great market hall today to buy some fruit and other necessities. There were more people out than before, very good for all the shops that they have more customers. My neighbour told me that one of the vendors told him last week that sales were down over 80% this year because

Foodie weekend again. All restaurants are closed at the moment. Open for take away of course, but for me that is not the same. Best place in a restaurant is where you can see the chefs at work! Brought home quince, bacon, salami, blueberries, raspberries, beer and eggs from the market. Baked a traditional walnut

Talking to potential client a couple of weeks ago, we agreed that I would compose a piece for him. He sent some reference tracks and those gave clear waltz indication! Version 01 was a light piano/string arrangement. The following versions were just the piano. But…. I couldn’t let go of the first version! Too much
