Trip to London
I had a lovely weekend in London at the BVMA Players Meet Makers Day.
It was a new venue this year, Kings Place, London. It was a very busy day with lots of people around trying instruments and catching up with old friends and colleagues.
Part of the day was the Brodsky Quartet performing with a range of violins, violas and cellos which they had chosen from participants after a very thorough and lengthy selection process. I was very lucky and proud to have one of my violins selected (copy of Guarneri del Gesu Kreisler 1730).
The day was a great success and a big thank you to the organisers at the BVMA. I found it a very positive experience. To round off the short visit to London, we managed to see Nigel Kennedy at the Albert Hall for his Gala concert with lots of guests including Robert Plant. As usual, a wonderful and unique experience.
