Grâces

Saturday will be the 200th anniversary of the birth of the French composer Charles-Valentin Alkan. I am fond of Grâces, No. 19 in his series of Esquisses (op. 63); you can click here to listen to it on Youtube.

With best wishes to my American friends who are celebrating l'Action de grâce today.
