The Power of Music
It’s always nice to be invited to write a guest post for someone’s blog. I’ve written a number in the past and generally find it rewarding. Being invited means the person whose blog it is trusts you enough to write something worthwhile, and with luck, more people will hear about your writing. Equally, I enjoy having guests and regular readers of this blog might remember the series of guests posts I had at the beginning of this year on ‘Why I Write’.
Today I’m on the Undercover Sountrack, a blog run by writer Roz Morris, about the music that inspired the writing of The Piano Player’s Son.
I found this really interesting to do. There are a number of references to classical music in the book, but my main focus for my guest piece was Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata because it encapsulates some of the emotional complexities of the family dynamics within The Piano Player’s Son. But, of course, Dolly’s Parton’s Islands in the Stream gets a mention as well.
I hope I’ve whetted your appetite sufficiently to hop over to the Undercover Soundtrack and read the post. There’s a free copy of the book for one lucky person who leaves a comment. So, if you haven’t read it yet, or you’d like to give it as a gift, why not have a read and leave a comment?
