this will change your day

by pieces of moments

So I had long, leisurely breakfast this morning with my friend Jordan, a very talented pianist. He was telling me about some rehearsal footage of Jessye Norman doing Carmen that intoxicated him and so, being a proper perpetual student, the first thing I did post-breakfast was to rush to my interwebs for personal consultation. I love Ms. Norman but (for whatever reason) I had never heard her Carmen.

Prepare yourself – this is amazing, breathtaking artistry in close-up.
