The Hopes from our Youth

“The Youth of a Nation are the trustees of posterity.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

Sometimes, the innocence and beauty of the young is all that keeps a breath of hope alive for their generation and those ahead of them…and those still to come.

And if they are the young who have dedicated their lives to the study and advancement of their art – no matter the medium – how much beauty they give to this old and tired world, where the adults in the room still have not learned how to love, and to live and let live.

“Old age realizes the dreams of youth: look at Dean Swift; in his youth he built an asylum for the insane, in his old age he was himself an inmate.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Tonight’s musical offering:

Tchaikovsky ~ Sleeping Beauty (Waltz) ~ Opus 66 ~ An absolutely splendid performance from a very youthful orchestra – at least a very youthful orchestra in this old person’s eye
