Two of my Gangs met yesterday evening. The Muggelsee Gang met the Kowalke Gang. Where? At the Kammermusiksaal, in The Philharmonie. We went there to listen to Amina playing in the orchestra called, ‘Junge Kammerphilharmonie, Berlin’. She is one of the daughters of a couple in the Muggelsee Gang. Her twin sister also has such musical talent but plays in another orchestra.
It started with an introduction to the music we were about to hear. At least 100 people listened to a member of the orchestra present an analysis of the music and with short musical examples. Very interesting, and it prepared us for what we were about to hear. Perhaps more concerts should start with such a presentation. This is what we heard:
Prokofjew, Sinfonietta, A-Dur, Op 5/ Kodaly, Marosszeker Tanze/ Sibelius, Symphonie Nr.3, C-Dur.
Very well played and a good mix of music.We even managed to get a glass of wine in the break. Prost
