The friends I made! They were the most wonderful bunch of soulmates and I felt I truly belonged for the first time. To this day I’m in touch with a huge number of them and they have helped me to get where I am today.
The whole chamber orchestra singing the Emperor Concerto in its entirety in the hotel bar after one of the concerts in Ireland. We couldn’t get enough of it! It got more and more ridiculous as each of us felt OUR part was, naturally, the most important! We were eventually chucked out and sent to bed by the landlord. I’d have loved a recording of that!
