After Leif's graduation ceremony he took me back stage in the school hall and pulled back the covers on the Kawai grand piano. He sat down, and without the benefit of any music in front of him he proceeded to play. I was entranced, but he, being a perfectionist, apologized for the imperfections. He said he would do better with music to read. Maybe so, but the music that he played was to me extraordinary for the beautiful surprise it represented. I had not heard him playing music for some time and it is plain that in the meantime he has discovered the most important ingredient - passion and real enjoyment of playing music.
After I took photographs I recorded him playing on my camera. It is not a perfect recording, but it has captured some of the magic of the moment. The recording is 4 minutes and 42 seconds long.
