A month ago I was given the opportunity to play with the Israel Sinfonietta Beer Sheva as part of the winners' concert of the “Negev Sounds” competition.

It was an amazing experience.

I've just been put on hold by an airline when I said I needed to buy a seat for my cello.

...come again??? ...Can I put you on hold... ???

(oh dear...!)
-here's hoping for lots of clarity and patience in the next few mins of the call!

Maybe a little explanation of my Female Composers Etudes Project might be good (for all of my new contacts here):

It's sort of a self-experiment: I play 1-2 etudes by female composers (mainly Farrenc & Montgeroult) every week to find out what impact this may have on my piano playing.

Will it change my technique? Is there any difference to playing etudes by male composers? If yes, what will the difference exactly be? Will I improve?

As the etudes collections by Farrenc & Montgeroult are also sort of piano schools I'm really curious what happens if you work through them step by step.

At the moment I've got the feeling that this could possibly change and improve my whole piano technique significantly - even at my age of 39.

So the other side of this experiment will be: Is there really a "too old" and "too late" for significant improvents when playing and learning an instrument? It's a big challenge for me and I'm really looking forward!

Hi good people of .art! Just made this account to share my photography so here is the obligatory

I'm a 29y/o who enjoys shooting street and urban photography, mainly on a XT4 nowadays. Edits are done on Lightroom and Photoshop mainly.

I don't go out to shoot or edit the pictures as much as I want to but I do my best.

Hoping to enjoy my stay
