This past week has been a very musically active week. First let me tell you a bit about the fantastic classes we had with maestro Rodes. He is such a knowledgeable professor, and his constructive coaching helped us get our chamber repertoire to the next level.
I had the pleasure of playing two Tedesco duets with my classmate and friend William Pofahl from Brazil. We player the “Prelude and Fugue in C# minor” and the “Fuga Elegiaca,” dedicated to Ida Presti. We got so many great ideas from the maestro, one of the most crucial ones was: “Make it an orchestral piece.” So now we will be inserting more colors and dynamics to this masterpieces.
Last week was full of concerts, on the 3rd we attended the Quaternaglia concert, they played an all Brazilian music program. This concert was a fundraiser for a ‘Guitar in the Schools’ project that is trying to start next year here in Alicante.
The highlight of the concerts last week was, by far, Sir András Schiff. His concert was incredible and his Schubert sonata was unbelievably passionate, sensitive and simply FANTASTIC!!!
Here is a slideshow of some pictures from both concerts:
