Headed to Stuttgart

After a few days in Basel, we are headed in a few hours across the border to Germany for a concert tonight in Stuttgart. Last night’s concert was very well received and a great way to kick off the tour! I’m spending the last few minutes — before the long bus ride — enjoying a coffee (and free internet!) at Starbucks.

I found this sign outside a shoe store yesterday while walking around Basel! Winkler’s are everywhere!

If you are reading this and have a moment to comment, please do! We want to know who is out there!

    My wife and I live in Basel. We attended the Basel concert and can sum up the performance in one word: FABULOUS! The Orchestra had a well-balanced sound, played with great precision and a lot of passion. Maestro Honeck’s enthusiasm was a joy to watch. Anna-Sophie Mutter’s playing was electrifying. As you all experienced, the Basel audience was very moved by your performance. I watched some audience members conducting along with Maestro Honeck and even gasping with delight during certain passages. A great start for your European Tour. Congratulations!

    Reading your blog as well as the others brings back memories of when I toured with the Orchestra. I too was particlary interested in the audiences. We really have fans around the world.
