Miguel Muelle

Born in Peru in 1957, we left Lima for the USA when I was nine. We lived in Boston, Massachusetts and later in Madrid, Spain. I have always loved music. In Peru my Austrian grandfather would play equal doses of "Studentenlieder" and Beethoven. It was on his Telefunken Hi-Fi set that I first heard the Tannhäuser overture under the baton of Knappertsbusch. My first personal plunkings, guided by ear only, were on the accordion he had stashed in the attic.

I have subsequently played any piano open to me, always promising myself that someday I would learn to play properly and to read music. In 2003, when I returned home from a business trip, my wife Lynne surprised me with a beautiful Yamaha studio upright. A few months later I finally began piano lessons with a classical pianist, and am now able to read music (albeit not as fluidly as I would like!) and play some of the masters - Bach, Chopin, and Grieg, among others — a dream come true half a century later!

A graphic designer for tv and iinteractive media working from home near Atlanta, Georgia, I usher with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, which enables me to attend many concerts and to meet some visiting musicians. The Baroque keyboard repertoire and Late Romantic orchestral music draw me most, although everything from "early" music to early 20th century composition interest me as well. Always having admired the Dvorak cello concerto, my future wife introduced me to Jacqueline du Pré's interpretation, which captured me. I fell in love with Jackie's playing in general, and even asked Lynne to marry me during the second movement. As a tribute to Jackie, I designed a Web site that has become the de facto official Jacqueline du Pré site (www.jacquelinedupre.net).
