Thinking again about Patrick’s memorial concert, and a link to the Libertango that Misha’s orchestra performed that night.
Here’s something different for you. I’ve written elsewhere about how much it meant to me for Patrick to attend one of my races, specifically, the 2014 edition of the Prescott Rally. That year Guidance Aviation put together the short video below. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
This is a video recording of the view from the restaurant and scenic turnoff on the road to Puig Major and on to Pollenca. Patrick narrates a bit, describing the watch towers that ringed the island, each in site of the next. It was a beautifully clear day, the 25th of November 2011. My camera […]
Here’s a Youtube video featuring Stephanie’s and Patrick’s good friends Suzy Bradbury and Misha Rachlevsky in a concert performance in Scotland. It’s a lovely, dynamic piece, about eight and half minutes long. You may recall that Misha conducted Patrick’s memorial concert in September 2017. Misha’s description: “This performance of Turina’s Rapsodia Sinfonica for piano and […]
Here is a link to a YouTube video of the Russian String Orchestra directed by Patrick’s good friend Misha Rachlevsky. You may recall that Misha led the memorial concert for Patrick in September of 2017. This video is from the last concert of last year’s USA tour (November 19, 2018, for Friends of Chamber Music […]
In addition to Circles, Patrick, Stephanie, and Phil accompanied Lady June in this recording of Loving. Much of this recording is a Lady June poetry recitation, and the audio quality is on the somewhat abysmal side, but perhaps you’ll enjoy the pictures I put to the recording. (Many are re-used from the Circles video.) Patrick, […]
Here’s a link to the video of Patrick’s memorial service on 4 May 2017. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
Here are a couple more recordings I found of Patrick playing my piano in October 2014. Here’s a short frolic on the keys. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
I haven’t touched my piano in months. The tuning is long overdue. I shirk those responsibilities. Now, while looking for something completely unrelated, I stumbled upon this video, a recording of Patrick playing Chopin from 2014. He hadn’t touched a piano in several years, perhaps since November 2011 at Jack and Vera’s, yet he was […]
Patrick visited the U.S. in the fall of 2012. During his last stop before heading home to Spain, I met with him at LAX, where we had a nice lunch at The Encounter (the spaceship looking restaurant at the airport), caught a movie, had a nice dinner, and made this recording. Because the recording is […]
Here’s a video of Patrick and Vera playing some Beethoven at Jack and Vera’s house. It was recorded in 2011. JPI’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
During my visit in 2011, we went to a restaurant called Meson Ca’n Pedro II for Thanksgiving, our first Thanksgiving dinner together in 50 years (we think). We liked this restaurant so much that we returned to once or twice more before I left. Above the restaurant is a statue called Monumento a la Burghesia, […]
