“berceuse” . . .
A Berceuse is a “musical composition that resembles a lullaby.”
Somehow, after reading and hearing so much about Philip Seymour Hoffman’s untimely death yesterday, I thought about playing Chopin’s “Berceuse” on the piano this morning in his memory.
Here is a rendition that expresses the sadness of Hoffman’s passing, an elegy of sorts, played by Vladimir Ashkenazy.
May Philip Seymour Hoffman’s family survive his absence.
