I ♥ Johann
I always wanted to go to St Martin-in the Fields to listen baroque music by candlelight but for some reason I never did.
Until last night! It was as beautiful as I expected. The director of the Ensemble amused us at the beginning explaining some of the tricks Bach would do writing music. He asked the violinist and the harpsichord players to show us how they played the same thing but one starting from left to right and the other from right to left.
Also he sometimes would not say when one of the players had to start after another and so on. I didn't know those things.
