THINGS I DO NOT
NEED ARE LEFT
Two left hands will not help this arpeggio; don't you
see the run of the notes, right off the page? Just like
the Devil's Trill Sonata - by Guiseppe Tartini, have you
heard of it? - there is a trilling movement everywhere.
It's called that because it's a devil to play - but I like
to think, as well, that in it the Devil had his say.
Soundless and difficult to hear or sense, the denseness
of being deaf in a world full of noise is tough : the sky
is never cloudless; it seems there's always
something going on.
