Went to a lunchtime concert, to hear new music by a colleague, and a Beethoven piano trio.

I liked the new music, but having heard it only once I can't write much about it.

The Beethoven was Op. 1 No. 3 in C minor, which I thought I didn't know but which was somewhat familiar. The pianist was seriously struggling with some of the scale passages, I felt bad for him and wondered if he had an injury, or just misjudged his practice. The piano in that space isn't amazing anyway. There were some flat entries by the violin. The 'cello was good. Overall, a spirited performance, but there were definitely bits where the three players were making something greater than the sum of its parts, and bits where they were playing the notes in order to get through that bit.

Went for a walk. Definitely getting lurgy. Walked further than I should have, but I think staring at the sea did me some good, mentally. Trying not to beat myself up about the "lost" time. Sometimes creative work requires staring at the sea.

Did #choralhour on Twitter. Found out my Magnificat might be sung by a choir in Edinburgh in April. Made contact with an Anglican choir in Berlin.

May have found a text for the Juice piece; someone suggested I set The New Colossus. This is appropriate, and topical, and I could also use it for the Choirs Against Racism project.
