I just picked up my copy of Clavier Companion and opened it to an article titled Beginnings and endings, by one Peter Kristian Mose. A light bulb went off in my very slow brain, hey, don't we have a Peter K. Mose who's been contributing on the forum of late? I wonder if he could be one and the same, especially as they are both from Canada. Now you smart folks probably already knew this but I'm often slow to connect the dots.

Peter, assuming you're one and the same, it's a pleasure to read your work and I commend to other forum members.

Many thanks, John. From your post, now I know that the article did indeed see print, and that the magazine is out. (It shows up pretty tardily to my Toronto mailbox: I probably won't see this issue for awhile.)

If any of you are interested, this is an essay describing my year teaching one-on-one piano to a lovely fellow in his late 70s who had rather severe dementia. It proved some of the most rewarding and most challenging teaching I have ever done. I included the eulogy I delivered when my student passed away.

Music can indeed penetrate to deep, word-free levels of the intellect, and we are privileged to connect with it on a daily basis.

I'm still old-fashioned when it comes to print journalism, but I see that one can already read this article online. For free. You don't have to subscribe to the magazine.

Just go to: www.claviercompanion.com and click around until you find pages 8-9 of the current (March/April 2012) issue.

thank you for that beautiful, beautiful article link
Peter and John (the names of two of my brothers). Your article and eulogy really resonated with me. My own father had Alzheimers and I have always been fascinated with music and the unusual mind.

That is really neat that you got to experience Don.

Peter, thank you for sharing this link. I intend to subscribe to Clavier Companion after reading this thread. Online it was great to see the video interview of Alfred Brendel. The online version has some advantages, even though I prefer a hard copy.

Oh my, that was so touching that I had tears in my eyes. What a lovely, beautifully written article and eulogy.

Lovely, poignant story, thanks for sharing!
I imagine there's a neuroscience explanation for this phenomenon , but that's beyond my field of expertise. smile

Thanks again!

As much as I love the immediacy and quick answers a forum such as PW offers, there's something very concrete and permanent with printed journals. I began my subscription(s) back in 1983 after seeing a colleague's back issues. The nearly 20 years worth of informative, in-depth articles are at least worthy of a master's in pedagogy! A second master's in music history, and a third master's in theory!

The biggest problems I hear from colleagues are

1) I don't have enough time to read them (translation - I can't be bothered to re-prioritize my life).

2) So much of each journal is of no interest to me (translation - I don't want to go outside my comfort zone).

These aren't problems, of course, but excuses. The more of us who subscribe, the more they can compile and publish. Thank you to all who have decided to subscribe.

John
