lunchtime concerts: the holy grail

For those in daily work, the lunchtime concert offers itself, or is presented, as a pleasing occasional rite: a 30-40 minute midday interlude when another kind of sustenance than the alimentary may be taken in. It’s a pause in the day, a period of contemplation, a walk in the garden that revives the soul in preparation for the return to the afternoon’s duties.

And I suppose as a societal function, that’s fine. But honestly, I dream of playing a recital that turns out to be more than an interlude: a listener decides to take a different path in life, and resolves to go back and hand in their notice, or simply not to go back at all.
