WOODWIND BLOWS SHEFFIELD 80.

9/11/2012. Been Looking Forward to a Praha Symphony Orchestra Concert. For Some Time. At Last it is Here. Sheffield City Hall Celebrates its 80 th Anniversary. Sheffield Czech/Slovak Forum Members, also in Attendance. One Member, not Been for Some Time. Last Time, maybe back in Bratislava. After Small Glass of 6-0 abv, Dutch Red Ale. Listen to Talk from BBC Broadcaster, Trisha Cooper & Chloe Hanslip, Violin Soloist. She Plays a Guameri Del Gesu 1737 Violin. Which She Says, plays Better in Cold Conditions. Interested that She Reviews Music that She is to Perform, even on Day of Performance. Also it can Alter with the Different Orchestras, Conductor, or Halls it is to be Played in. All Fascinating Stuff. Chloe has been Playing Violin since 7, and is used to Living from a Suitcase. The Orchestra is Conducted by Heiko Mathias Forster. Lead by Rita Cepurcenko. Concert Begins with Mozart Overture : Don Giovanni. Last Heard in Praha, with Puppets !. Then Chloe Performs Johannes Brahms, Violin Concerto in D. The Allegro Giocoso Ma Non Troppo Vivace, Most Vivid. Well Played. Surprised She Did Not Receive Flowers !. Retire for Interval & Strawberry Ice Cream. Then Main Event, Anton Dvorak. Symphony No 6, The Pastoral. Woodwind is Very Strong in the Four Part Symphony. Playing is of a Very High Standard. Czech Musicians playing from the Heart. Oboes to the Fore, Imitating Bird Song. Performer Moving in Time to Music. Clearly Involved in the Piece. Relived My Recent Time in Krc Forest. Also imagined Kuky ( Film ), racing through Woodland. Being a Dvorak Society Member, this was a Concert Highlight. Out in to the Sheffield Night. Fat Cat, Great Beer. Their Own, " Standard Firework ", 4-0 abv. Spicy, Ginger Tone. Easy to Drink, and I Do !. Wonderful Evening finish,s with Cheese Sandwich,s at Home.

All My Years in The Czech Republic. Pardubice Was My Starting Point. Went for The Zlata Priba, Speedway. So Knew of the Horse Race.

Czechs Gather Around the TV Yearly. Everything Stops. To See the National Event. Like the Aintree Equivalent.

Richard Has Done Exhaustive Research. Really Liked the Extensive Notes & Tips for Further Reading. Would Recommend The Radetzky March By Joseph Roth.

Lata had a Ideal Childhood. From Nobility of a Kind. Though Not So Rich By Any Means. At The Time of The Hapsburg Empire. Living in The Country. Running around with Dogs & Horses.
