Hi, I haven't post anything for one month, I haven't read much either. I've missed you.
The last weeks have been really intense, including one week at home (Cartagena), a couple of visitors and tones of work at the office.

Today there's a concert in Friesach. In the site looks nice but we'll arrive at 17, we'll play till we're exhausted, we'll have a break so that our fingers will freeze, then we'll play our concert, afterwards we'll have a drink with the organizers and local people and then the bus will bring us back to Villach.
In the music school I started playing Mozart's quartet number 2. I took the first violin and I don't know if it was a good idea. It's very hard to play, but very beautiful too :). Wednesday I meet the cello player to practice it, I already practiced with the second violin. I'll try to get a photo of the ensemble and post it in my next entry.

Next week I'll attend a concert in Krefeld.I don't really know which orchestra is playing but my former teacher's husband plays contrabass and she'll also be there. They play works by Chopin, Lutoslawski, Weill and Szpilman. I'm really excited about it, actually I'm excited about the whole trip, I'm always happy when I'm back in Germany.
I was thinking of inviting Bram to the concert, but Krefeld is quite far from Waddinxveen (though very close to the netherlands).

Best wishes!
