My wife and I were married 20 years ago today. Happy anniversary, babe.


That’s the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, by the way. It was a beautiful place to get married. It was, among other things, gloriously reverberant. One friend later said something like “I went to a great concert, and some people got married.” (A twist on the old joke: “I went to the fights and a hockey game broke out.”) Whatever else might be said about the life of a musician, you at least have a lot of musician friends who can play at your wedding.

The program:

Mia Hynes and Troy Gardner played the prelude, which was the first movement of the Brahms G Major violin sonata. Mia then played the processional, which was the Beethoven Bagatelle in E flat, op 126 no. 3.

Finally, Timothy Dunne played Domenico Scarlatti’s G major sonata K. 13 as the recessional.

Thank you, old friends, for making our wedding so beautiful.

Thank you, Helen, for making my life so beautiful.

    Amazing choice on the processional, the Opus 126 Bagatelles are some of my favorite pieces to play on piano, and have been for years.
