|Musicians playing the Wagner - taken with "Photo Booth"|
Tuesday, July 25, 2017
We're at the Marlboro Music Festival open rehearsal in Persons Auditorium. We earlier heard a 2-hour rehearsal of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll a favorite for me and Ellen too, and incredibly delicate and very demanding. Now it is a string quartet a Mendelssohn Quartet Op. 80. Really gorgeous, lush music, played beautifully. It is very interesting to hear how the pieces fit together in a rehearsal.
