Strathcona band was preforming a Christmas Concert today at the church downtown. We have been to the junior high Christmas concert, but the high school kids are in a league of their own. They are more refined and mature and quite sophisticated in their sound. They played one very modern piece which was our favourite. […]
After my day out at Monza, I got back to the Villa Medici for the piano concert which I was invited to by Maestro Kanno. Together with a number of other guests and the owner of this fabulous place we watched 4 young musicians show off their polished skills after a week of teaching and a […]
Back to Altenburg Castle
We are back to Altenburg Castle in Bamberg. It is such a beautiful and secluded site that offers phenomenal vistas of Bavarian countryside. This time for the first time we decided to climb the watch tower. There are two places where you can get some spectacular views. One of them is mid way through the tower […]
As always they are absolutely brilliant. Almost two hours with encore! There was an interesting take on But Not Tonight which Martin sang just with a piano. I think we should go and see this show again, anyone interested in joining us? Prague comes to mind in February. I will drive. We wish you could […]
We are in waiting for Depeche Mode to come out!
To Munich and back, door to door – that being our house to Zenith Cultural Hall and back. One quick stop for gas a 3 sets of constructions. 326km in total in just under 2 hours. Driving at night on autobahn is just one of those things that one has to try. The only side […]
Kicking it up
Arctic Monkeys are on stage – it’s going to be a great night.
The Strypes are on the stage and they are loud. We had a pretty good run here. Just a touch over 1 hour including a stop for some gas!
When London Grammar came out onto the stage our first reaction was, but they are just kids! They are so young. Indeed they are young, but they sound not only mature and unique but also simply amazing. Small venue packed to capacity, no one getting drunk, no one smoking and no one pushing or shoving […]
We Are Here
I think this club has a capacity for maybe 100 or 150 people. It’s going to be great.
We are setting off to Munich tonight to see and hear London Grammar preform at the Atomic Cafe. It is a relatively new band which Anna has discovered somewhere online and we like it very much. It’s not going to be a long concert as they only have one CD but it should be a […]
Lyon – Roman Ruins
Another great find in Lyon is the ancient Roman amphitheare – or rather its ruins. In its glory days this place used to seat about 11,000 spectators now the shows hosted here sit about 4500 people. Despite its age, the world wars and time which has taken its toll on the buildings, this place still […]
