News from Switzerland (vol. II)

May 28, 2007 at 6:44 PM

Hi all,

I'm still getting to know this fascinating country. I've found a violin teacher and I really like the way he understands and explains music, I like his method. I hope I'll be able to practice more in the future.

Not long ago I brought my things from Austria. Now my 30m2 flat looks like a storage room, since there was already furniture in it. Anyway I managed to leave some free space to reach my bed, the kitchen and there's of course a small playing area. I move in july and then I'll have more space and an internet connection.

I started playing Bach's largo, from the BWV1005 in C. And I really have to struggle to play those double, triple, quadruple stops. Sounds terrible, but I see I'm improving.
I entered the Musikverein Lenzburg. They have quite a nice Home-Site, don't they?
(unfortunatelly only in german). We have the next concert in july, so I have to practice a lot. Haydn's Symphony 97, a marimba concert from Ney Rosauro and a J.Ch. Bach's Ouverture.

I also joined a running club here (well.., almost joined), and there's an oral agreement to run Munich marathon in october and Vienna in may 2008. Let's see how it runs :)

Best regards to everybody!

Glad to hear from you again!

Oh dear, you and your running... ;) I have respect for anyone who runs marathons. Wow!
