Brought a tear to my eye

18 Dec 2006

This email reproduced with kind permission from it's recipient, the beautiful Nikita, lawyer extraordinaire at my workplace. It is from her dad. Jesse is his grandson.

I am still trying to believe that this really happened!...
I'll tell you all about it. But first a little history.
When Jesse started violin I spent a bit of time recording many violin pieces, solos and so on for him to listen to. Among them was Haydn's Op 3. No. 5 'Serenade'. As this is one of my all time favorite pieces of music I developed the fanciful idea that it would be great, -Magnificent even. If Jesse were to one day play this for me. I sent away and obtained the sheet music on which I drew a cartoon and gave it to Jesse. Well that was in '99 and the thought still lingered , more or less as a nice dream.
Today I attended an end of the year concert conducted by Jess' teacher,and,You guessed it... A total surprise!
" Backed by the other members of the quartet. Jesse Morley will now play a piece which he dedicates to his grandfather. Haydn's Serenade"!

I was not the only one who shed tears during this, Very very beautiful!
Love to all. Dad.

Merry Christmas everyone ....
