—“””It’s not a love song, exactly, and it’s not a song about addiction, exactly. “Between the Bars” is about the ways in which protecting somebody you love turns into the need to control that person.”””

—“it’s really a love song written from alcohol to Elliott”

–“First, and most obviously, they’re the bars within which the speaker/singer is drinking. Second, they are the bars of the musical composition he is dedicating to that endeavor. Finally, they are the bars of the prison he is metaphorically creating for himself, and might, someday, have to face in a literal way.””

and many more interpretations……..

I am most glad to announce our recital “Apparition” on the 29th of April at 20.00 with Rémy Dechambre! Join us for an evening that visits from fragile Mimì and femme fatale Norina to Debussy’s reveries and Bernstein’s 10-year-old thoughts…and many more! All these in a warm and cozy place, Art Base in Brussels. Our program owes its name to a poem by Mallarmé we both love and which immediately enchanted us…

Tickets available here !

Feel free to share this event with your friends.
Take care and enjoy spring!
