On Wednesday, Erich Höbarth and I played the final concert in our Mozart Series in Perth Concert Hall.
It has been a lot of work, and a lot of travelling (especially for Erich, coming from Vienna each time) but it has been very satisfying. In fact, it has been one of my favourite projects in recent years. We were touched when we began to realise how many people had made major efforts to be at every concert, in some cases coming up by train from London, driving up from the north of England, or down from the north of Scotland. It may not have been the biggest audience ever gathered in Perth, but it must have been one of the most loyal.
After Wednesday’s concert, we stayed on for an extra day and went for a fabulous walk through The Hermitage at Dunkeld (see photo) – a walk which Mendelssohn once did on a visit to Scotland.
There was a five-star review of our final concert in today’s Herald. Click here to read it.
