Mercoledi Musicale

As well as having a way with a patter song Noel Coward knew how to sell – and write – a ballad. He constantly plays around the beat of the song, sometimes holding back and at other times anticipating. He had no formal music training although he did take singing lessons to work on his technique. He was a self-taught pianist and if I remember correctly from one of his biographies, would work out his music on the piano then have someone else copy the notes down.

  1. I am so ashamed…I have this song in my player from an internet download and it’s filed under Eartha Kitt! (let the flogging commence)

  2. Lovely songs. Hope you’re having a wonderful time in Venice. Thanks so much, dear, for the cyber candle, and all the kind messages on the blog. It meant a lot. xoxo
