Happy Tenth Anniversary

Filed under:Cool,Music — posted by Anwyn on December 27, 2007 @ 12:10 am

My college roommate and her husband are celebrating ten years today. Their first dance at their reception was to Billy Joel’s “This Night,” and I played the Beethoven Joel ripped it off from, Sonata Pathetique, second movement, as a prelude to the ceremony. Happy anniversary!


  1. I am so impressed that you can play the “Pathetique.” I knew you were musically gifted, but that’s beyond gifted. (That’s also disciplined.) Do you still play?

  2. Oh dear, I should clarify. I can play the first part of the second movement of the Pathetique–the very slow part–quite well. The rest of the second movement I can play reasonably well. The rest of the Pathetique I’ve never so much as touched. :) I’m not much of a piano player and certainly not at all a disciplined one. I play a lot by ear and have some sight-reading/fakery skills I gained when I was choir-directing and accompanying my choirs myself.

  3. Fakery skills can be very useful. Wish I had a few myself when it comes to music. Or anything else!
