Goodbye TSO...for now

I am back in Melbourne after 3 fantastic months with TSO. It was great fun, and I will be back for two more programs late in May.

Before that is Also Sprach with the MSO and Andrew Davis and other goodies including Brahms Requiem.

I am knackered. Am getting to the age where this much playing is really taking it out of me. The last two weeks with TSO had 19 calls in 11 days, plus travel on top. Am feeling my age!! Good job I have a week off to rest and practice before tackling Also Sprach in Melbourne. I had better get used to it as my diary is so full I have only 3 free weeks between now and 16th Dec. No rest for the wicked!!
