Day 2

Our second day of rehearsal was last Wednesday. It did not go the way I imagined; it was nevertheless, helpful. With only three hours of practicing, I was afraid that we might get short of time on Thursday. Somehow, things turned out very well.

The morning session went pretty well, and we focused on the new trio again. Solved a problem or two we were having with it, and got to play some of the old pieces. We did have a long break for lunch, and some rest, believing that the afternoon/early evening session would be OK. Because of a force majeure reason, Jaana had to leave from the rehearsal just before we started -she had to help a neighbor of ours. Like this and like that, we had the possibility with Silver to practice our duo. From our old program too, though a bit tougher, since it is pretty hard for the cello. Or as he put it, "very uncomfortable." And with his arm problems the last year, I can see why he is not too eager to play uncomfortable works...

The day ended with a late dinner, a flammkuchen straight from Alsace. First time I did it, it was successful. With some practice, it will get better, I guess. Cheers!

buzz it!
