… and as close as I will come to the opera for the time being. Sadly we should have been in rehearsals for this right now.

Bravo to these fine musicians, though!

Next up with Symphony Silicon Valley is Bach & Mahler with the wonderful Tatsuya Shimono. I always love working with him: he is one fine conductor and is so very musical.

I thought I’d see if he is on YouTube with Mahler 5, since that’s what I will be playing with him, but landed on some Mozart instead. That’ll do. The Gran Partita is one of my absolute faves!

Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra; Tatsuya Shimono, Conductor
Gran Partita (only four movements: Largo – Molto Allegro; Adagio; Tema con 6 variazioni, Andante; Finale: Molto Allegro)
