Black & White Sunday: Light


While I was listening to a recording of Keith Jarrett’s Bridge of Light for Viola and Orchestra, a beautiful contemporary classic 17 minutes piece, I felt like the only audience in a private concerto.

The image surfaced in my mind of a small, beautifully lit bridge as the tones of the masterfully played viola took me back to the summer I first visited Vicenza.

Note on etymology: 
The etymology of the word concerto “is uncertain, but it seems to have originated from the conjunction of the two Latin words conserere (meaning to tie, to join, to weave) and certamen (competition, fight): the idea is that the two parts in a concerto, the soloist and the orchestra or concert band, alternate episodes of opposition, cooperation, and independence in the creation of the music flow.” (source Wikipedia)

  1. Wow! That is a beautiful shot Paula – a very inviting bridge. And the etymology is fascinating: I had never thought of that.

    And oh dear, my offering is very childish compared with this!


  2. What a daring theme for b&w! And of course you post a splendid photo. Lovely lines and centring, as well as a glow of light.


  3. This is just lovely, Paula. Elegaic with the choice of music, but many other possible interpretations too. Keith Jarrett is hugely popular in the Farrell establishment, although mostly for his jazz works. Thank you for this intro to his classical work. Been struggling with birthday gift ideas for OH. Brilliant on all fronts then – your light bridging the darkness 🙂


      • OH – other half aka Graham! I’ve been eyeing up the Koln Concert but don’t know it, but now you’ve spurred me on to listen to Jarrett’s classical works. I’ve just done a ‘light’ post btw, so you spurred me on in that direction too. Have a good Sunday.


  4. First can I just say what a fabulous body of work your Scheduled Challenges page represents, Paula! It’s a privilege to be included. I still have many posts to visit, but I’ll get there. Thank you so much. Sunday hugs!
    And now to this tranquil beauty. 🙂 The music marries with the image to sooth the soul. Wishing you peace, Paula.


  5. Oh, thank you kindly, DM. I am very happy that I managed to convey that 🙂 and there is music attached, but it is a bit long 😀

    • Thank you, John, and you are right. There are very cool architecture in my surroundings, old, new, ancient. I should get to that 🙂
