Feminine Fusion

Dec 8-14, 2018: Patchwork Quilt, Part XII

Pianist Martha Argerich

Pianist Martha Argerich

Music, my love,
you have taken my hand
in sorrow and led me
from darkness.
You have taught me grace
and forgiveness.
Music, my love,
you whisper to me
of paradise.
                    – Katherine Hoover (1937-2018)


Sometimes we listen to music just because.  Those are Patchwork Quilt episodes, with an hour of compositions and performances by women.  Some of the music is new, some is familiar, and all of it is outstanding.  Enjoy!
