“Going Home — Leaving Home — Finding Home Again”
Ljova, fadolín / improvisation, based on a theme by Antonín Dvořák, from his Ninth Symphony.
Recorded August 3 2020 in New York
“Going Home — Leaving Home — Finding Home Again” — that was the idea behind this improvisation, taking a familiar tune through new turf — for about twenty minutes.
It’s perhaps an unusual time to be playing “Going Home”, since most of us are sitting home with no place to go.
Many are restless, constantly worried for the winter that’s to come. In our neighborhood, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, homeless men and families fill the malls on Broadway, with no home in sight except the home within… Nothing is permanent –– this, too, shall pass, and we will all find home again.
Thanks for listening, stay safe and keep in touch, dear friends!
