It was a very moving few days. Three concerts of the joyous Concerto No. 22 in E-flat major, K482 by Mozart with conductor David Zinman and the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center in Washington. A very nice reunion with a conductor I respect highly and was so happy to work with again. He is a very natural conductor–letting the music speak without forcing anything, but always to great effect. The concert piano left a bit to be desired (to say the least), but I will remember this for next time. I didn’t do too much other than concentrate on those three performances, apart from a visit to the beautiful Phillips Collection. And I visited with many friends who come every year to my Trasimeno Music Festival in Italy. Now I must concentrate on putting together the programme for next year. That takes so much time and thought. Back to London now for a series of recitals there over the coming weeks.
