In the Beginning

July 10, 2010

The UPS man stopped my husband outside on the sidewalk. "I’ve got a BIG delivery for you." Oh yes, he wasn’t kidding...ten giant 100-count cartons of CDs, a small mountain of a pile in the entry of our apartment. (Those who have visited the Toth-Shin residence know that the entry room functions as a garage, storing stray harpsichords & pianos, seats from our car, boxes of items coming to/from our storage place, miscellaneous flotsam from 3 children.) Finally here: my newest CD, organ music, mostly from the Renaissance, played on two historic Dutch organs. Just in time, since in a few days, my husband and I were to set off on a four-week journey to play concerts and visit historic keyboards in six different European countries. (How many CDs fit into a 23-kilo weight limit suitcase??)

  1. Brava Diva!!! Hope you had just the best time; got to spend your B-day in Europe - what a great treat! I'll order your new CD soon... Paul and I are off to Europe in October with my parents (85 and doing great) on a Meditteranean cruise! Hope to see you and Dongsok soon... Robb
