Goerne and Eschenbach play Schubert

– wellsung.blogspot.com

After kicking myself for two (?) years for having missed the Matthias Goerne/Christoph Eschenbach Winterreise in favor of choir rehearsal or some other garbage, this evening’s rendition of Die Schone Mullerin offered some long-awaited relief. My only live experiences with Goerne thus far have been in the context of large scale symphony concerts…

The first time that I encountered the Grande Messe des Morts was as a 21 year old student at the Royal Northern College of Music. Had I realised then, what I do now, I would have run far far away from it…

News from the sick room!

– briandickie.typepad.com

I have been touched by the messages of concern and sympathy.  Thank you all!
I am on the mend but can not look a wine glass in the face, or indeed any of my favourite foods, without a degree of nausea.  But I will no doubt be back to myself gradually over the coming days.  Meanwhile a few dry days will do a world of good!
