Yesterday my friends and I were treated to a piano recital performed by my friend Patrick who has been visiting from Germany. This is the third time he's performed for the members of my Memoir writing group, the second real 'formal' recital, held at the luxury condo building in the West end where my friend B. lives. Above is the view from B's 11th floor window looking out over Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park. What a fabulous place to spend a pleasant Thursday morning!
The building has a luxurious lounge, which B. says is never used. Here's the little group of us relaxing before the recital begins. It's a perfect place to hold such an event with good acoustics and, as you can see, very beautiful surroundings. Posh! B. provided wine and nibblies which made it even more special while we sat back on the comfy couches and listened to Patrick play.
Patrick played a half hour selections of Baroque music including Bach. He's an accomplished pianist but his real passion and skill is as an organist. He plays the pipe organ at a church in Germany where he lives. We feel really privileged to have him perform for us. A real treat!
