“berceuse” . . .

by mulberryshoots

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.
