a feathered symphony

*

cheeps, tweets

squawks and caws…

coos, pecks

honks and quacks…

quite an ensemble of musicians

to awaken the senses ~

performing a melange of melodies

to accompany life’s many dances….

a metronome ~

ς

this concerto i live

breathes

the same melody

…day after day…

solo adagios of somber and cloudy grays

yet

an allegro of color can burst on to the scene

and

PRESTO ~ ~ life does not feel as dull as it seems!

the masters and their dreamers

~

to stand on a stage again…

where the lights are bright

and

the music echoes through the rafters.

~

to feel the sensation of a pounding heart…

fueling the purest of desire to soar on the wings of muses

&

become one

with their masters

and

the

vision

which dwells

 forever

within their spirit…

~

this is my ‘for always’ dream.

inspired by ‘The Phantom of the Opera’
and
a
dream

The Nutcracker Act II – The Finale

The Finale

soaring crescendos

all the dancers on the stage

Clara bids farewell

clara

me – Act I – center stage – before the tree starts to grow

The photo above was taken from a special souvenir photo book which was created for the 1981 Nutcracker Season.  After spending my Sunday afternoon digging through boxes, I found this gem amongst many, many other treasures.  This photo was taken in 1979.

I hope you have enjoyed my series of pieces inspired by The Nutcracker Ballet.  As a child, the holidays were The Nutcracker. As an adult, they are very special memories – ones which I will never, ever forget.  Just ask my boys….they hear the same stories year after year, after year, after year…..and it looks like y’all will be suffering the same fate!

The Nutcracker Act II – Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy

The celesta, an instrument invented in 1886, gets its name for its “celestial,” tinkling sound.  It provides the distinctive music that accompanies the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. It is a struck idiophone operated by a keyboard.  Tchaikovsky is considered to be the first major composer to utilize the celesta in a musical composition – his Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy is the most well-known. (For the music buffs in the audience, Tchaikovsky first used the instrument in a symphonic poem – The Voyevoda in 1891 – The Nutcracker was written in 1892.)
