|Intermission Double Basses!|
I went to the NSO’s Masterworks show, where as a James Ehnes was guesting, playing a 3 hundred year old violin.
Suffice it to say that I now understand the fuss about virtuoso violinists. And violins. At the end of Meditation From The Opera Thais, (Jules Massenet), everyone was silent. I could actually hear people inhale together before they applauded.
And speaking of applause, it went on so long and enthusiastically that we got two encores. Both just amazing. Now I remember why I wanted to play violin in the first place. 😛
There was so MUCH applause, in fact, that my hands were numb. And I didn’t notice that I’d banged my hand against the seat until I looked down and saw this.
So we went to Tim Hortons and I ordered a double double and a band aid. Really. 😀
|See? Double Double. 😀|
Then my computer broke, which is why this post is so late, but that’s a story for another post.
