15 / 02 / 2012 - Paul

It's been a lovely few days here in Melbourne. This is a vibrant and pleasant city, with a nice climate, friendly audiences and great architecture. Both concerts have been great fun, and the venue, Melbourne Recital Centre, is a world-class auditorium. The hall's designer attended last night's concert, and was so pleased to receive our positive feedback.

We've been staying at the 'Mantra Southbank' - a really nice apartment hotel, and we've had our own kitchens and washing machines. It has been a rare pleasure to do my own washing and ironing as well as a bit of cooking!! Simple pleasures, but like a home from home.

So now onto Sydney once again and to the Opera House, one of the world's most iconic buildings. More soon ....

A scene of domestic bliss at the Mantra Apartment Hotel!

  • We were thrilled to perform our MacMillan premiere to an appreciative audience in Perth. It's a great piece, and we're looking forward to programming it more next season in order that more audiences are able to enjoy it. Today is an odd day in that we fly to Heathrow but don't go home! After a two hour layover, we head to Germany ahead of this term's final concert - in Heidelberg, tomorrow evening. The programme includes some old Strauss arrangements taken from the group's 1980s recording, "An der schoenen, blauen Donau." read
