education is very very.
the princess asked me the other day
‘do we have any cd with tchaikovski?’
we have. ‘why?’
‘the music teacher asked us to bring some, we’re having a class on tchaikovski’
so i find the symphony no. 6 aka ‘pathetique’ and a couple of piano and violin concertos. then, just before she got out of the door, i remembered the ‘compilations of masterpieces’ and call her back to have also some pieces of ‘the nutcracker’, ‘sleeping beauty’, and ‘swan lake’.
‘the teacher will surely prefer these shorter ones’
this evening, i asked them my cd-s back.
‘well, which one did you listen?’
‘there was no time for it’.
wtf. of course. it was the music class about tchaikovski, how could they possibly have time to waste?!?
