Born this day in 1887 - Heitor Villa-Lobos ! To celebrate the birthday of this Brazillian composer, here's a new video from a live performance of Mazurka-Choro (from Suite Populaire Bresilienne). The suite is one of his earlier works for guitar, and shows he was writing lovely music for guitar even before he met Segovia. https://youtu.be/t0vplpKLlNc

My nephew is preparing for his ABRSM exam on guitar. We played this duet together to help him with his preparation. I find children often enjoy & benefit from playing along with others.

Wandering around the historical Qianmen Street in Beijing and the traditional old commercial street of Dashilanr, I feel the excitement of being a tourist whilst at the same time the nostalgia of returning home. I found it interesting that when I was teenager living in Beijing I preferred to go to the very modern places in the city - I was always impressed to see the changes to people's lives. Now coming back to my hometown from abroad I particularly like to go to those traditional locations in the city that have a distinctive character that belongs only to us.

After the Chinese New Year concert I I was really happy to be able to celebrate the new year with my family. Strolling on Wangfujing Avenue (Beijing famous commercial street) brought back lots of memories - I hadn't been there for 10 years !
