Jules MASSENET (1842-1912) (Ger., Eng.) wrote a very fine little piece, Elegie (notes here) that we hear performed by a very young Giuseppe di STEFANO (1921-2008) (Ger., Eng., obit.), one Eduardo MULLER at the piano I could not identify, recorded Lausanne 1944. I hope you like it.
We had heavy rain and thunder through the night; its more or less constantly raining through the day, but not necessarily became cooler – it’s more like a giant sauna now.
At the bookmines the annual Tag der offenen Tür, the open day, is thankfully over – more than thirty thousand people flooded the area, the fair with agricultural technic and modern machines was held even two days longer. Now things go back to normal. The students will soon leave for semester vaccation, what means nights without Bonk (yeah!), and there is even a small chance that I can see the house where the books will finally be stored.
I hope we’ll have a successfull week all around!
