Classic favorite instrumental pieces (piano)

The Virginia Symphony just recently had one of their better performances at Chrsyler Hall.This is the type of stuff I’m talking about. This program happens to have had one of my father’s favorite symphonies, “Bolero”. It is a classic that both of us adore. The family treated my parents to this performance for their 42nd anniversary present. Needless to say they loved it. They said there were sisters who could play the piano masterfully which was my first inclination as a child to take up playing the piano. They're known as the Naughton sisters and they were fantastic! As a concert pianist I figured I could be as famous as them but as you know child hood dreams change so frequently. I played for many years and did many recitals. It was fun and my mother and sisters were my biggest fans since they were around more often. My dad gone in the service a lot and my brother thought it was boring. I found it was rather easy to pick up but I had trouble with fingering. You can’t cheat. You’ve got to become comfortable using all your fingers not just a few or you’ll never get through your pieces. I once sold tickets down to the Virginia Symphony right in the booth at Chrysler Hall here in Norfolk, VA. If only I knew then what I currently know now. I could’ve been mentored by the great Virginia Symphony conductor Joanne Falletta herself and been a great pianist today. Then again being less than dedicated to my work later on I probably would’ve flunked out her group. You’ve got to be good to play with her. I’m still satisfied with my career in the Arts I could say. I took up another type of Art later. Writing if you haven’t guessed but I’ll tell you’ll more about that later.
