The Soundtrack of my Life
One beautiful memory from my relationship with my dad was the time he took me to see the stage play of Amadeus. Mark Hamill
portrayed Mozart, and a stand-in I no longer remember portrayed Solieri -- and I am not saying the actor was not memorable, he just was not F. Murray Abraham! (For those of you who have seen the award-winning film, you of course know that excellent performance.
I even forgot to mention at my father's memorial why I asked the pianist to play Mozart...that shared experience back in the Eighties was part of the reason. My father's life-long appreciation of classical music, of certain composers and musicians, of Public radio stations like, KPFK, or KPCC. He also tried to play, although he essentially drove my mom mad over the practiced repetition of Moonlight Sonata in the night.
