Firstly, the rehearsals with Exposure Berlin were in full swing. It has been a blast to get to know all of these wonderful musicians and the amazing people who are putting this show together. It is sure to be an unforgettable experience! The composer, Pucinski, made a collage for each of our rehearsals. This is from the last rehearsal:
One of the best parts of this production is the fact that the theater itself is as much a part of the production as the story, the actors, the musicians, and the music. This would be a great production anywhere, but in this particular theater, it will be an unforgettable experience. I'm looking forward to the premiere on October 12!
This was not my only exciting part of the week, however. With Enda Gallery I also performed several times in the last couple of weeks, at locations such as Mastul and Café Blume to name a couple, and at the Malzabend event at Malzfabrik. We have almost no videos or pictures of ourselves performing together (lots of people take pictures and videos, I see them, but we haven't been contacted with any of them!), but Malzfabrik was kind enough to make an album to show us what we looked like, and give a taste of what the event was like.
Malzabend was a great evening organized by a group of kind and friendly people who took great care of us. We were helped by a wonderful sound guy who made everything sound fantastic, earning this gig the title of our best gig of the week, if not the best one of the month! It is amazing what a great sound person can do, making sure that the levels and balances are all just right so that everyone sounds their best and can just relax and enjoy the moment of making music. Which is definitely what we were doing in this picture! You can check out Malzfabrik on Facebook for some more pics and info on what they do (basically they provide spaces for artists and creative thinkers to work productively).
And suggestions on great movies for that age group (or maybe even a bit younger, if they're good!) would also be appreciated...
Of course, what you've been waiting for (ha!) is the video of the Polonaise Brilliante from my Master's recital! Well, here it is:
