One day we heard this marvellous new record of Sparky and his Magic Piano on the programme and it was so popular it was repeated almost every week. If you do remember it, there were 8 pieces of classical piano music played by the magic piano, and four of them were Chopin pieces.
That was when I fell in love. I can remember the actual words that went through my mind as I heard the Chopin pieces: "You mean people can listen to beautiful music like this?" I had never heard anything like it, and to this day Chopin is still so magical for me and I thank whoever wrote and recorded that record (or probably a series of records) for introducing me to music.
