This week our friends from Germany put a little surprise video into my Dropbox. It was originally intended as a special birthday greeting from Germany. My wife and I were so deeply touched by its beauty both musical and visual that I decided to post it on my blog with the contributor’s permission, of course. Abend Ballade means Evening Ballad. Its music was composed by Edda’s second youngest brother Andreas Trampenau, grandson of my uncle Bruno Kegler. Edda played the composition on her Kawai E-Piano and her husband presented the wonderful images of clouds in the form of a slide show further enhancing the festive mood.

With this musical and visual treat I would like to wish you all a Blessed and Happy Easter. Please note ‘The P. and G. Klopp Story’ will continue with Chapter Twenty next weekend.
