The Running Tally….

This sabbatical trip is all about music…..and wine.  I mentioned all of the wine regions that we have visited in a previous post.  But I haven’t tallied the concerts we have experienced.  Here is a list, as far as the memory goes:

Eisenstadt, Austria – 3 concerts – Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn

Vienna, Austria – 1 concert, Haydn

Pottersdorf, Austria – 1 concert, Haydn

Dublin, Ireland – 3 pub concerts

Cork, Ireland – 1 pub concert

Galway – 1 pub concert

Gourock, Scotland – 1 Celtic Festival

London –  3 concerts – Evensong, The Book of Mormon Musical, Bruckner at The Proms (Royal Albert Hall)

Amsterdam – 1 Play, 1 dance recital in the park, 1 Organ recital

Brussels – The MIM – Musical Instrument Museum

Bordeaux, France – Organ Recital – Bach, Reger

Milan, Italy – La Scala – B Britten – The Turn of the Screw

Luca, Italy – Puccini aria recital

Venice, Italy – Vivaldi 4 Seasons

Innsbruck, Austria – Early Music Ensemble – Bach, Handel and Vivaldi

Berlin, Germany – Berliner Philharmonic Lunch Series and evening concert – Mozart, Enescu

Paris, France – Orchestre de Paris – Berlioz, Debussy, Britten,  Organ Recital at Notre Dame, trying to get tix to Ballet (Opera d’s Paris) at Palais Garnier for Friday night.

I think that  that covers the biggies.

We had plenty of company on this 3 month journey:  Brett Perozzi and Teri Bladen spent the Italy leg of the trip with us (10 days), we met up with Dirk and Paula Davis from Logan in Germany (2 nights), spent 2 nights with our new friends (that we met in Brunate/Lake Como) Iris and Alfons in Kassel, Germany (2 nights), and ate dinner and a Michelin Star lunch (this coming Monday at Auguste) with Bill and Beth Saul (from Logan) in Paris.

We still have a few days to go and are enjoying our time in Paris.  I will end this blog with a pic or two from “Par-ee”.

I am a college professor in the music department of Utah State University. I will start my sabbatical on May 1, 2016 and plan to document the year's experiences in this blog. The sabbatical consists of musical endeavors in Europe/UK for 3 months, and half a semester as guest artist in a couple of California universities. Thanks for following!
