Tartini's El Trino Del Diablo Tartini: Violin Sonata "Devil's Trill" / Mutter Orkis (1989 Movie Live) from youtube.com
Lorraine Hunt & Julius Drake - Schumann : Frauenliebe und -leben Op. 42 From youtube.com
Although I did not include this on my novel HENRY KING THE RISE OF EMPIRES, I had imagined a beautiful scene of Florentine singing the first art song of Frauenliebe und leben...'Seit ich ihn gesehen'.
Beethoven, Symphony No. 3, "Eroica" (arr. for a Piano Quartet), 1. Allegro con brio from youtube.com
Henry proceeded to the main lobby as he marvelled at the elegance of the casino. Wall to wall carpeting, with its elegant bohemian style prints of elephants and leaf patterns. Golden chandeliers ware suspended majestically above, casting an immaculate light upon the great hall.
A small orchestra played a heroic classical symphony, upon an elegant balcony supported by ornate marble pillars. -A.D Valeraine
Zimerman play Chopin Scherzo in B-flat minor, op. 31 from youtube.com
Another scene that I did not include in the final cut but was in the original munuscript. Ian playing Chopin's Sherzo in Bb minor.
Elena takes the lead as her pale fingers passionately moved upon the cello's dark ebony fingerboard while Anna Marie's quick bow movements, created a wondrous climatic rain of contrapuntal notes as their instruments vibrated in perfect harmony. Their womanly bodies seemed to move in a mesmerising dance of hardwood and flesh. Stretching the bounds of reality and ripping all sense of time. The dark but powerful sound of their instruments, contrasting the two women's soft beautiful faces.

Fall is coming, the holidays is just right around the corner. I just want to share this swelling feeling of positivity I have in my heart. I have this great admiration for humanities continuing evolution towards an ever positive evolving path. The love we share makes our road a truly great adventure -Alex Valeraine
