2009 Starling-Delay, day three: Pictures from New York

May 29, 2009 at 5:41 AM

NEW YORK - In between classes at the Juilliard Symposium, I am having quite a lot of fun while I'm here in New York, so I thought I'd share a few pictures:

I did take some suggestions from the wonderful list you guys made me, specifically, I went with my friend Lauren Deutsch to the Applewood Grille (thanks, Eric John-Félix Livingston!)

I needed some scores, specifically the Barber Concerto and another Bach Sonatas and Partitas (why not get the Szeryng edition while it's right in front of me?) so I went to Frank Music, where I met proprieter Heidi Rogers, who wrapped up my music in a beautiful blue envelope with a little tie on it.

(Here she is helping violinist Hermes Alvarenga, a symposium participant from Brazil)

And, at Frank Music they have fresh eggs!

It's been a little rainy, but here is how The Juilliard School is looking this week in May:

And here is the view from the new Kaufman Dance Studio, where our classes about Bach and Biber were held with Monica Huggett (and you will read more about that soon!)

Tonight was a special treat, I had dinner with Caeli Smith and Karen Rile, finally meeting them in person after our longtime friendship! And for dessert we were joined by another V.commie, Colleen Russo. What a great evening!

Good night from New York!

That's great! Monica Hugget is a very fine player. You are very near Christophe Landon Fine Violins, you could visit him and test drive my violas there.... ....:

Wasn't "Ray's Pizza" a Seinfeld gag?

I forgot to mention, we saw Jerry Seinfeld drinking coffee at Starbuck's one morning!
