A challenging return to the office full-time this week (after working remotely 90% of the time for the past two years). Playing this quietly right now.

Recently spent a lot of time listening to The Complete String Quartets by Vagn Holmboe (Decapo 8.207001) .First impressions were of a jumbled mess but after a lot of patient listening I ‘cracked the code’ and now wonder why I found the experience like learning another language. Unfortunately a large number of recent classical compositions make no sense to me after more listens than I care to remember. Sometimes I wonder if they make sense to anybody. Maybe it’s just me? Maybe it’s just that some refuse to admit the emperor really has no clothes?

On the other hand I can see this form as almost valid if it’s attempting to describe the ‘intellectual’ absurdities of deconstructionism and/or the present state of the world.

French composer/organist Olivier Messiaen (1909-1992) improvises at the organ of the Paris Church of the Sainte-Trinité (Holy Trinity), where he was organist for more than six decades (since 1931).
