Unknown tunes

During this old-men-with-beards month, I discovered Charles Koechlin, a French composer of the early 20th century, whose name faded in unjustified oblivion.

Fall of Icarus

At first sight, the famous painting from the 16th century that used to be attributed to Pieter Breughel the Elder, shows a farmer who plowes his land. On a plot next to him, a shepherd is daydreaming, surrounded by his sheep. A fisherman is fishing on the waterfront. From a distance you can see the city of Athens. At sea there is a boat. But nobody notices the drama that is going on in a dark corner and which refers to the painting’s title.

Heavy heart

I really hope that Jan Pronk gets very old. Every time I see him in public, the expression of his face increasingly predicts stormier weather. I’m curious how bad it will go.
