Liz on Top of the World | piano improv

In token of the Literary Heroine Blog Party; some improv recordings of various period drama score favorites will be forthcoming throughout the week.

"I often tell young ladies, that no excellence in music is to be acquired, without constant practice. I have told Miss Bennet several times, that she will never play really well, unless she practises more; and though Mrs. Collins has no instrument, she is very welcome, as I have often told her, to come to Rosings every day, and play on the piano forte in Mrs. Jenkinson's room.  She would be in nobody's way, you know, in that part of the house.''
                                              --Lady Catherine DeBourg

Forgive my most inexpert performance - I have made only the most limited use of Lady Catherine's gracious permission of the housekeeper's piano forte, and know I have none but myself and my insufferable pride to blame.

This is Liz on Top of the World, a beautiful theme from the 2005 Pride and Prejudice soundtrack by Dario Marianelli.


  1. Absolutely lovely Kellie! You did a really great job... Really like that song! I am looking forward to more!

  2. Lovely! Have you ever played the Emma theme (from the 2009 version)? It's a duet so you have to get someone to play with you but it's beautiful!

  3. Beautiful job and what a special treat for the LHBP!

  4. Beautiful.....listening to this over again while I do some lesson plans. :)

  5. Love it! So very pretty, I've never seen the movie it's from but I might need to now!

  6. Kellie, you are absolutely amazing!!! You play so very well. God has gifted you with many talents.
