London for a concert

Today we were off reasonably early (but not crack of dawn as usual). the weather was better than expected in that the wind had died down and the rain had stopped.. for the moment.  Haven't been to Wigmore Hall for a while so nice to be off there once more..

This is Billie.. on his first outing to London

We had a wander to find some breakfast..

which was our first of 3 visits to a Pret today!!

Listening to church bells ringing.

Covent Garden.. they're starting to put the Christmas decorations up ..

Then after a coffee - at Pret off to Wigmore Hall

and finally, on the tube on the way home Billie with Cuthbert and Bentley - 3 happy bears...

Good concert with two very talented young musicians...Maximilian Hornung on Cello and Hisako Kawamura, piano.

Music played:

Schumann, Funf Stucke Im Volkston Op. 102

Webern... Two  Pieces for cello and piano and
Drei kleine Stucke Op. 11

Brahms Cello Sonata No. 2 in F Op. 99

plus an Encore...

Wilhem Killmayer - Caprice de Figaro... lovely !!

Excellent day out despite the dull weather and some excellent music to set the mood and make the mind think...

Dawn and twilight need not have bothered today, the sky has been so grey.
