First rehearsal

Just home after our first rehearsal of Schubert and Strauss!  I'm still singing the melodies, completely mesmerized.  I had so much fun playing through for the first time today, there are so many things that are already in sync between us, a real understanding of the Arpeggione especially.  We are really exploring the possibilities and honing our interpretation and there are already many things that Alex is inspiring me to do with these pieces.  We have played a  lot together, but doing this project with Alexandra is really a treat for me.  She brings so much nuance and elegance to this music, I can't wait until the next time we rehearse!
