In class III, I learned a poem about five kittens in a basket. There was one line that said ‘Each one when I pet it seems surely the best’.
As The Oberon Trio played, each piece as they played it seemed surely the best.
At the end of their Haydn, I could not decide which movement I enjoyed the most. I have no idea how long or short the piece was.
At the end of their Brahms, I could not decide which of the instruments I enjoyed most. I wanted to keep listening to all of them.
At the end of their Shostakovich, I did not want an encore because I was just so moved by the piece and its emotions. My eyes were filled; I could not say a word.
P.S. 1: The violinist’s eyes made me think of what Georgette Heyer always describes as ‘fine grey eyes’.
P.S. 2: Needless to say, The Oberon Trio made me contribute far more than I’ve ever put into a donation box before.
