Beethoven Eroica - May 24, 2012

Edwin Huizinga (violin)

I’m wondering what all the clicking noise is by my feet and realize my flip flops are flopping around in excitement. Yay yay, I’m a little boy waiting for something exciting to happen! Well, kind of – except I just showed up at work with Tafelmusik and Bruno Weil is about to give the downbeat to Beethoven’s Third Symphony. It’s going to be a good day!

Bach and the Violin - May 3, 2012

Patricia Ahern (violin)

We had our first performance of the Rachel Podger programme last night, and it was great fun! From the very first notes of the Bach's E major violin concerto, Rachel happily and energetically led us with all the same brilliance and detail that we worked on in rehearsals. Our recorder/flute soloists Alison Melville and Matthias Maute were virtuosic and a treat to hear in a Telemann concerto and then also in Brandenburg Concerto #4.
