I don't even know what he was playing, and that's not even the important thing to this story anyway I shut my 36 eyes; it was as if he was painting with sound. I saw tender, vulnerable pictures. I was a child in a village, a child who'd just plucked a tangerine from a tree. Around me were the sounds of a town, Sabbotino Grappa maybe, voices speaking in Italian. I watched other children playing under a fig tree, and because it was so orange and shiny, put my teeth into the tangerine peel before remembering that this is not a good thing to do; it tasted terrible.
Now I cannot tie my own shoe, my fingers are so crippled. But it was a beautiful garden, and you could hear the child playing the violin through the open window. Small boy, not more than four years old, and he played the violin! A divine gift. His mother played the piano. Music was in his veins. And the smell of lemon trees. I didn't mind that the father was cheap and barely paid me enough to buy food. All in all, as gagging as a dental X ray. "No one ever mentions that he is a wife-stealing psycho," my father said once after Dino was featured in the entertainment section of the newspaper--Famed Musician Seeks Local Inspiration.
Schumann and Beethoven, Chopin and Handel and Rachmaninov and Liszt. Tchaikovsky and Wagner. And, of course, Dino Cavalli. In that group you've got every variety of creation: the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and Farewell to Arms and the epic poem, "Ode on a Grecian Urn," which, if you ask me, finds its true greatness as a cure for insomnia. You've also got every variety of crazy act. You've got the gross--van Gogh slicing off his earlobe and giving it to a woman (you can just hear her--Damn, I was hoping for chocolates), and the unimaginable--Virginia Woolf filling her pockets with stones to hold her down in the river so that she could do an effective job of drowning.
