Merci, Danke, Jenaer Philharmonie for this great time together for the second concert of my residency. This was my first real experience to work as a “conductor” with an orchestra, and I absolutely loved it. Thank you for experimenting with me with Love, Joy and Patience. I learned so much in just a couple days. And it was fun! Thank you Donata, Christian, Jörg, Ina… all of you!
Our concert was sold out since mid November, and I couldn’t dream of a better last concert of my year.
This morning, I met a 6 years old philosopher at Rhapsody in School: “Warum Klavier heisst Klavier?”, “why a piano is called piano?”; and I felt like a rocker playing Bach and seeing the kids jamming out on their seats.
Also, it was a pleasure to go back to my favorite coffee spot, Nordic coffee shop Holz & Hygge for their delicious latte. Impossible not to mention the best and only hang open past 11pm where we musicians enjoy delicious smelly Quattro fromaggi pizza, debate about Thuringian beers and elaborate very advanced technics to recreate double bassoon sound.
I couldn’t dream of a better way to close 2019. What a ride this life is.
