Ravel’s Introduction & Allegro – as yummy as a chocolate chip cookie 🍪

Camarada Video of the Day
Maurice Ravel’s Introduction & Allegro
featuring Elena Mashkovtseva, harp
Elena and I have been performing together for many years. I love and appreciate her so much. She is very Russian and very direct…. and she makes me laugh. She also has one of the most giving and kind hearts that I have ever met – just ask her students!
Putting together any chamber music starts with selecting the musicians and by some miracle, gathering them together for rehearsal. For this concert we brought our San Diego musicians together with Lars from Brazil and his friend Karl from Alaska. It was quite an experience – and I love the final product. Nothing is quite like being right next to the music as it is being played – but I hope this video transports you to Bread & Salt to a time not too long ago…
