The story of MUSICAL SECRETS takes the form of a series of vignettes from a life.
Plot is replaced instead with a processino of realizations, resulting in changes of heart and spirit, more than of the body. It is personal reflection and above all, inspired by the music itself.
To me, music is no more abstract than the “hidden” self of any person. What is “secreted” in one’s heart is equally “secreted” in music. passion, emotion and mystery in a great piano piece, large and small, is found in the character of an individual as well. In both, the varieties are endless, and the quality of mystery, tantalizing. Claude Debussy once said, in effect: “Music begins where words leave off.” I couldn’t agree more.
