So many fantastic memories of friends from all over the world. Wonderful experiences – the New Year parties in Paris, Normandy, Vienna and Prague, the Haydn Bicentenary in Eszterhaza, the concerts in stunning private villas in Corfu, cruising on the Danube from Budapest, our superb apartment hotel on spectacular Sydney harbour and a great variety of varied experiences in Thailand. The week cruising in the Caribbean with the Lindsay Quartet was really fantastic. All these wonderful places with such enjoyable chamber music playing, lots of interesting coaching and wonderful concerts.
In the early and mid 1990s we had wonderful Festivals in Eszterhaza in Hungary first with Alexander Brussilovsky, George Sopkin and friends, then with the Lindsays, the Kocian Quartet with Michal Kanka, and the Aron Quartet. In 2009 we celebrated the Haydn bi-centenary while staying in Eszterhaza over the actual date, amazing concerts and an incredible atmosphere.
This year (2012) we had excellent coaching with the Martinu Quartet on the Rhine. In August we were in Vienna for the outstanding Aron Quartet Chamber Music Festival in the magnificent Schloss Laudon followed by wonderful coaching sessions with the Quartet. Our hotel in the centre of the Old Town was a perfect location for visiting some many great places of musical interest.
Now we look forward to the future. In March we shall be in Istanbul, one of the most splendid, interesting and historic cities in the world. Then to Budapest from 29 May to 7 June with the wonderful Martinu Quartet coaching, also concerts and opera, stunning sightseeing and a very sociable nine days. Vienna again in August for the superb Aron Quartet Chamber Music Festival and lots more. Finally back to Corfu with the Martinu Quartet coaching 20 hours and giving concerts on this beautiful island. We have an optional fascinating three days on the Greek mainland and Butrint just over the border in Albania.
So many wonderful memories of thirty years and interesting and exciting plans for the future.
