Following the success of our Sunday matinée outing last week we decided to do it again. Leon Fleisher was playing at the Koerner Hall and we managed to get excellent seats. It is such a joy to go to this new (2 years old I think) concert hall, the acoustics are superb, it is comfortable and easy for us to get to. A magnificent job built around the Royal Conservatory of Music.
Leon Fleisher has had more surgery on his thumb so he played some pieces written for the left hand. His wife Katherine Jacobson Fleisher joined him as they played Brahms, Schubert and Dvorak together. An unusual and delightful concert.
This week will be spent prepping for the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show next Sunday. Lots of other lovely antique textiles too. I have not done a market since last summer so I will have my work cut out for me.
