A most moving musical event.
Shortly affter Fukishima,Mitsuko Uchida
playing Beethoven with Mariss Janssons
conducting.I was able to sit very close
at the rehearsal.During the slow movement
she had tears in her eyes.
She was playing for Japan
A wonderful excursion to St Gallen
to see Antigone Papoulkas as Ruggiero.
I t was a very lively production with
ballet and complex set and colours.
Antigone's strong performance kept it all together!
She was very moving in a most complex plot.
