April 17, 2006 at 8:28 AMHi everybody,
I'm sorry that I've been reading a lot of interesting entries these days and not answering much.
I was looking forward to write Colleen how scary that thing with the tornado was. I've never seen one of those "crawl spaces" in Europe, don't know if it's good or not, the thing is I've never needed one. My only experience with tornados is watching Dorothy's house being blown away in "the wizard of Oz" and that other movie "Twister" but honestly, I prefer the first one.
Regarding music not much new, unfortunately. No concerts, no classes due to easter holidays... (don't like holidays :( ), but I got myself Michael Haydn's organ/viola concerto with Tabea Zimmermann (I had the opportunity to listen to her playing in Frankfurt and she's absolutelly amazing) and i find it Great. Because of the holidays I could practice A LOT, something like 3 hours/day average, but that isn't something I can do in working days, ...and I started running again! :D. I'm very excited about that because it was already one and a half months since last time. My previous teacher used to say sports are very good for musicians and I think she's totally right. I'm already thinking about my entry in v.com after the marathon in Leipzig :)
For those of you who asked me to send some pictures, I spent some time yesterday making a gallery with some of my personal favourites. I wanted it to be restricted to my time in Austria (the last 7 months), but I had to surrender and add one from a city I love and miss so much, Paris, the wonderful Concertgebow in Amsterdam, and some from a nice hike I did with two friends along the river "Neckar" from Heidelberg to Stuttgart. I hope you like it. I have to thank Pauline who gave me the idea of creating a flickr account.
Of course I know about the risk of seing my face in another body with a cow mask on it, but I will accept it as long as I can share a bit of the beauty of those moments with some of you.
I also wish everybody a beautiful spring and a lot of practice!
BTW, in flickr.com there is an option, everytime you add some html stuff to your gallery, to preview your entry. That could be a great thing to have in v.com. Robert, is it possible to get it or is it too hard? It's just an idea...
