This was an intense, exhausting and exhilarating experience. 10 + hours of travel, a 12 hour day consisting of a recording session and concert, a day spent hanging out with Fritz Novotny (including a long walk in the Vienna woods, and a delightful home-cooked meal at his new girlfriend Eleonore’s home), and then 10 + hours of travel. (Plus, in addition to being put up at a very nice hotel, I was met at the airport by a driver holding a sign with my name on it; seriously. [People who know me and my history, will understand why I bother to mention it.]) My deep gratitude to Fritz, Sepp, Christoph, and all the (other) members of the RAO.
