Historical Connections - Ontario Tour, February 12, 2013

Christopher Verrette, violin

...times like these are opportunities to get some preparation done for whatever is coming next for the busy musicians of Tafelmusik. Especially with a tour of the memorised House of Dreams show not too far over the horizon, we like to take advantage of being gathered together for "playdates" for grownups (if we qualify).

Time Travelling and Snowstorms - Ontario Tour, February 11, 2013

Christopher Verrette, violin

Setting out on tour often reminds me of the opening chapter of La Lenteur, by Milan Kundera, in which a scene of fast-paced modern traffic leads to a reflection on a very different journey taken in an eighteenth-century tale and culminates in an encounter between two characters from different eras.
