…Everything indeed went well after that first train I missed in Vienna. I’m really looking forward to seeing the videos now, not only Debussy but Arenski and Dvorak too! I don’t know yet what the upcoming summer is going to be like, but I’d really, really love to come back.
I wanted to write you an email to thank you once again and your whole family for welcoming us in that beautiful place and making this summer so unique. To me, it really was an eye-opening experience on chamber music. Having the opportunity to play with musicians with completely different musical backgrounds and cultures was super interesting and rewarding. Courses like this one are extremely rare: it was all about the music and having good times, while still being very serious and focused on working together, not about who’s playing scales the fastest.
After colluvio I took a few days break from the cello, and coming back to it I was amazed by the sound progress I made and I think it is greatly due to playing that much chamber music.
Best regards from Paris!
