Well it’s been an amazing day. The Ady Ensemble members (Adyophiles) gave their all today for the final day of our Brahms Recording Project, which we’ve been rehearsing over this last week for today’s recording session. The day went without a hitch, and I was both humbled by the dedication and enthusiasm of the players and, like many of them, I felt transformed by playing this wonderful music: Brahms 2nd Symphony. After ten long months, at times grueling, of planning and preparing this project, when I finally put my arms down for the last time it was hard to believe that it had come to an end, and that we had achieved what we had set out to do. To my friends, those who were a part of today, both playing and assisting, I cannot thank you enough for the faith that you put in me, for which you repaid in your playing tenfold. Thank you, and see you soon 🌺
