V for Victory
September 19, 2010 at 8:48 PM
Got a phone call from destiny: Beethoven wants me to play his fifth. The music's already in the mail, and could I be there on the 22nd for the 7:15 downbeat?
Of course, what better way to celebrate my return to the symphony than with a date with the universe? Beethoven's fifth lies on the stand, and though I've never seen it before now, my fingers fall in line as though predestined.
Some call it practice; this is more like going home.
