    So nice of her to let your film her for your video, and it was nice to see the warm up, thanks.

    I was yesterday, monday 17 May, in Salle Pleyel for the PSO concert. It was great, and so generous : three pieces of “bis”. First Tchaikovski, but I did not recognize the terrific second one. Somebody knows it ?
    Thank you.

    Riffier – the second encore was Khachaturian’s “Galop” from Masquerade!

    Just FYI, I’m reposting this video as I type this – it will be up shortly. I stabilized the video of Anne-Sophie to greatly reduce my camera shake (it’ll help a bit, but it’s still a little bouncy in the opening 20 seconds or so of that segment.

    It’s back up!

    I often wonder how I would do conducting an orchestra. Enjoy the rest of the trip…!

    Enjoyed your play on words and space! The linear movement from the world outside the concert hall to the soul of the orchestra was uncanny. Istomin’s quintessentially Russian introduction of his country’s legacy to France, Lev’s choice of elevator hallways to practice…finally Anne-Sophie Mutter’s relaxed wam up were a treat to my senses. She is an amazing violinist, very natural and yet such control!!
