Wednesday marked my first day of classes. I think I am going to love my Mendelssohn seminar. It's taught by a brilliant Australian harpsichordist who's in the process of recording the complete keyboard works of Bach... no small undertaking. He said, with a smile, "It will probably take me from now until I die to finish." His enthusiasm for music, knowledge, and life was inspiring.
Also, his shirt was off by one button all the way up, so one side of his collar stuck up an inch higher than the other side.
So you know he's a real intellectual scholarly type.
