Lara Kirsten a musical genius’s tribute to her Dad
The Midlands is privileged to have great talent in it’s landscape. If this doesn’t blow your socks off …
“So today is my dad Louis’ first birthday after he passed away last year. Ooi so much i want to share with him especially music.
I am in the middle of preparing for my solo piano concert tour beginning later this month. I have been playing a lot on my dad’s red piano (standing here in my home in the Midlands). Whenever I would go visit him he would ask me to play on this piano (my parents got the piano in the 70’s for under a R100 and he fixed it all up, replaced the wooden panels with glass, mounted 4 lights inside the body and painted and decorated it). In memory of Louis I share this piece I recorded yesterday on this very piano. The piece “Seguidillas” by Isaac Albeniz.
Thank you Louis for inspiring me to love music this much. Ek sal en kan nie ophou speel. Dankie.”
