Programme Note
Tilt oscillates, but perseveres. I’m put in mind of a wonderful description of Samuel Johnson (an unlikely hero of letters despite his oscillating moods) by his faithful biographer, Boswell:
“So morbid was his temperament, that he never knew the natural joy of a free and vigorous use of his limbs: when he walked, it was like the struggling gait of one in fetters; when he rode, he had no command or direction of his horse, but was carried as if in a balloon. That with his constitution and habits of life he should have lived seventy-five years, is a proof that an inherent vivida vis is a powerful preservative of the human frame.”

— Donnacha Dennehy, Sep 2006
