Here are 2 flyers for the 5 concerts of 2 of my 5 orchestra's this half year.
After this weekend my life will become quiet concerning playing concerts.

The soloist is a 2th violinist of the Rotterdam Philharmonic orchestra http://www.rpho.nl/2006-2007/secties/orkest/musici.php#
The conductor is Hans Leenders www.hansleenders.com

The soloist Lucian Leonard Raiciof is the concertmaster of the Residentieorchestra in The Hague, see http://www.residentieorkest.nl/ro/index-orkestleden.htm and is like the conductor (a former 2th concertmaster of that orchestra)Alexandru Lascae www.lascae.com also born Rumania.
Both conductors conduct also professional orchestra's.

10 days of rehearsals + 5 days of concerts +7 minutes Henri Vieuxtemps

April 24, 2007 04:05

From monday 14 april till 24 april I had every day an orchestral rehearsal (combined with a normal 9-5 job). From 25 april till 29 april 5 days of concerts. Last weekend I had 2 rehaersal weekends of 2 orchestra's (14 and 15 april was also rehaersal weekend). So I missed 1 rehearsalweekend. The other weekend was from a good and serious and high level orchestra. I asked whether I could leave at 14.30, because a former Glazunovsoloist Helbertine

would play some of my favorite composer Henri Vieuxtemps, during 7 minutes (I gave her the music). But the committee was severe. I was not allowed to hear that, otherwise I was not allowed to play the concerts. But the conductor stopped not at 17.00 hour but at 16.00 hour, so I drove fast to the middaychamberconcert of Helbertine about 1 hour and entered the little synagogue just after the break. And she played with a pianist my favorite composer

Here again some photo's I made earlier when I was in the birthplace of Henri Vieuxtemps in Verviers, Belgium, Europe

2 pigeons on the statue

1 strange man has put 2 Vieux Tempsbeer bottles on the statue

Drinking something on the ice near a restaurant

Because they did not have normal nature ice, because of the climate change the temeprature is too often above 0 Celsius, they are building an artificial ice track of 4,7 km in Biddinghuizen in the Netherlands, the 1th of the world, because a normal artificial ice-oval is 400 m. Yesterday I have seen all the machinery digging for that track that will open in december.
