Up in Essex this weekend with Pete as last night (Friday) we were off to a concert at Saffron Hall.
The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was conducted very ably by Marin Alsop.
Their first piece Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 4 The Italian- excellent and captivated me in each
The second half - had Nicola Benedetti taking the lead roll in Beethoven's Violin Concerto. As always, Nicola playing beautifully with such feeling for the music.
All in all a most enjoyable evening and a full house at the concert hall.
Today off to meet some friends for a coffee
and the intention was we'd head off to for a wander to Wimpole NT. However by the time we were ready to set off, it was raining hard, so given my wine 'store' was in need of replenishing we went to Baythorne Hall to stock up.
Plan B - off to Finchingfield for lunch and a wander.. lunch was great - rain stopped play for a walk.. so that was it.
Hoping for better weather tomorrow..
