I had an interesting evening. On vacation in Paris, I found a concert to attend via Google. Performed by Adrien Polycarpe, the set list included Debussy, Satie, Chopin and some Beethoven and Schubert. Interestingly, although I am just 5 years in, many of the pieces performed were ones I’ve learned (albeit he played a lot better than I do). These included the Chopin Nocturne Posthumous in C#min, the Nocturne in E min, Satie’s Gymnopedie, Beethoven’s Sonata 14 (1st movement), Debussy’s Clair de Lune and others. He used the Chopin Prelude in E min as the encore.

It was held in an old church, constructed in 1334, rebuilt in 1733, The Eglise Saint-Ephrem-le-Syriaque. The church is now used for music only.

The most fascinating point is that even though I don’t speak any French, don’t attend church, and didn’t know anyone there, the music was over course familiar and it seemed to transcend these barriers.

I always enjoyed hearing professionals perform repertoire I have played or was working on. Glad you enjoyed the concert! It’s a while out, but I can’t wait to visit Paris in April 2020.

It’ll come quickly! Paris was really delightful. I haven’t been here since I was young, in the 70’s. What a cheerful city, full of history, beauty, leisure. The Parisians love dining al-fresco; outdoor cafes are all over. They love sitting for a cup of coffee or some wine. And fwiw, despite warnings from friends everywhere, I didn’t experience one single hint of snobbishness or anti-American sentiment - not once. I hope to return one day soon.

Nice that you knew many of the pieces. Keep those pieces in your repertoire and now you'll know which way to take their further development! smile
