Julia Blinova and me

People have been asking how my Ottawa concert went.  It was very successful; here is a photo of the pianist, Julia Blinova, and me, taken right afterwards. This was my first collaboration with Julia. I was very impressed by the balance in our playing. The way we sounded together as an ensemble, and felt each other musically, is a miracle given the limited time we had to rehearse together. The audience sat enthralled. My girlfriend Dina overheard a man confessing  afterwards that he had found himself crying during the concert, which he is not used to. Many people told me that had they known what it was going to be like, they would have brought all their friends to hear our music.  Perhaps this means that I should return to Ottawa to give more people a chance to come hear us -- we'll see.
