Monica, here's a bit more info. Your secret benefactor wanted me to let you know that the autograph is indeed Einaudi's. She contacted his press people and asked for a message for you.

This is the relevant part of their reply:

"Right now mr Einaudi is on a pretty intense tour. We caught him yesterday and shown him the email among others. He took a music sheet and wrote "To Monica K, Ludovico Einaudi" and he drew a small sign/sketch and hand it back to me. "

She sent them your mailing address (that you had shared with me) and they forwarded the book on.

Hope you are doing well!

Sam

Oh my, that is just so overwhelming and sweet! (I'm not crying; I'm not crying; okay, I'm crying. laugh )

There is so much goodness and beauty in this world, even in the midst of pain and darkness and fear. heart

Any chance you can post a pic?



Well, figuring out the PW photo uploader is a challenge in itself, but if I did it all correctly, this should be a photo:

And whoever it was, thank you thank you THANK YOU. heart I just spent a wonderful half hour playing through "Birdsong," and I didn't think about cancer/chemo/tube feeding/radiation/surgery once. thumb


This whole thread just warms my soul! PW is filled with beautiful people.🙂

Wishing you good health, Monica❤️

What a wonderful, beautiful gesture. Yet more evidence that this is the most thoughtful corner of the internet.

I hope all is going as well as it can be Monica

Monica,

I have never participated in the regular recitals so was unaware until today about your health. I now have popped over to your website and see all your performance videos. I will look at them all and be thinking of you.

Hope all goes well,

Nice,

Also note that it seems his anonymous gift reaches more people here than a named gift would have smile

This is a wonderfully thoughtful gift. And for an anonymous benefactor, an awful lot of people seem to know who s/he is!! smile
