Arrived in Bristol yesterday and today I played a concert in the fantastic hall St. George’s with the equally fantastic Callino Quartet! We just managed to get together for a short rehearsal, and the concert was a joy! Even though it was our first concert, it felt like we had been playing together for years.
Tomorrow we are going to Wells for a couple of more concerts including a recital with Harvey Davies.
Oh, and I know I am not a travel guide, but I have to say that Bristol is an absolutely wonderful city! So vibrant and alive and yet cool and laid back. Lots of music and art all over, and as you can see in the picture, Banksy has affected the city’s view on art quite a bit.. It is full of great restaurants, of which I am doing my best to frequent as many as possible in my few days here. Luckily, my cousin is living here, and besides being my guide to the city, she also brought her friend and cheered for us at the concert – thanks for that!
