Impressions from Travels - Naples, Florida.
4th live performance after the lockdown last year - a memorable experience sharing Mozart’s Turkish thrills with the Naples Philharmonic and Mo. Radu Paponiu on two consecutive nights in the acoustically magnificent Hayes Hall. Here's a clip of one of my absolute favorite moments in the concerto - the solo entry in the second movement, "Adagio". Some words to characterize this movement: ethereal, plaintive, wistful, all underscored by a sense of calm buoyancy.
