This Is What It's All About
Last night's rehearsal was fantastic! This is as good as it gets. I am playing with a different group this week, a group that has not met since before the holidays. We are having a guest conductor that we have never played with before and this was the first rehearsal for next Saturday's concert. The overture and symphony went well and after our break we settled down to play the concerto, Brahms d minor piano concerto. The soloist was superb, the players were "in the groove," and the conductor was obviously having a good time, too. We frequently achieve this kind of rapport with each other at a concert, but to have it happen at the first rehearsal... !!! It should be a great week.
