HOW LOVELY – ‘for the past eighty years (wrote the cellist Pablo Casals at the age of 93) I have started each day in the same manner…I go the the piano and I play two preludes and fugues of Bach. It is a sort of benediction on the house. It fills me with awareness of the wonder of life, with a feeling of the incredible marvel of being human.’
