I have been spending lots of hours trying to make my fingers move faster on this piece. It is the Ibert Flute Concerto and our orchestra is hosting a Young Musicians Concerto Concert this Saturday night.
We have seven concertos to play and seven very talented young soloists. The Ibert is difficult but very exciting and you can hear the 1st movement here.
Along with Ibert, we are playing some Mozart, Beethoven, Telemann, Vivaldi, Haydn,
Saint Saens and Weber.
Read all about the programme for Saturday here.
I have been thinking about comfort food to get myself through all the rehearsals and today I have a big pot of vegetable soup simmering on the stove, and these just came out of the oven.
There are lots of recipes for flapjacks out there but this one from Yarnstorm works every time, and now I am going to take a break from "TOO many notes "and have a cup of tea and a flapjack.
