Rainbow in Riga

I was walking through the old town square in Riga with my cello on my back (on my way to play the Protecting Veil), and this wondrous site greeted my eyes!

It put me in such a good mood I was sure the concert would go well, and even decided to play in bare feet as it was so warm.  I think it went well, except I completely forgot to play one phrase, and wondered why the orchestra were so behind. Oops). The Kremerata Baltica were excellent – they make a wonderful luminous sound, much more like a big chamber group than a small orchestra. Back to London to see my daughter dance at the Royal Opera House tomorrow, then back to Latvia for an all night concert on Saturday. Tonight’s conductor gave me some Russian tea that apparently keeps you awake  – that’ll be handy.
