Then off down to Portobello to arrange some fiddle lessons - first one is next week. Then all the way back across town to to do some composing at a Logic session back at SCE.
On Wednesday, nothing on in SCE for me, but lots of practice at home and bought a CD (Loch Ness by Bruce MacGregor). More composing and exploring Logic and Sibelius. Decided I need a usb microphone. Also playing the hardanger which has sadly now gone back to its owner. It has spurred my partner Si on with the one he is making. Great - can't wait.
Next onto strings Group. We played Handel: Concerto Grosso Op.3 No. 5 In D Minor: III, IV and V. Sight reading classical music at Allegro is challenging for a traditional musician that plays by ear! Finally I went out to the Usher Hall in Edinburgh to see the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (SCO) and the wonderful soloist Viktoria Mullova playing Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D major, Op 61. I was sitting in the circle and yet the violin she played had great projection. I am amazed at her skill and presence on stage.
Friday evening - out to the trad session in Leslie's Bar.
