Fortunately, more seats were added and the recital enjoyed full house. Thanks to Mariana Holbrook's hospitality, we received a warm island welcome and gauging from the audience reaction, it was returned through the music making.
Since the program was about Russian music, I have chosen two rarely heard pieces as video highlights: Schnittke "Five Aphorisms" and an Encore by Mikael Tariverdiev "Two in a Café" from the classic Russian film "Seventeen Moments of Spring".
The recital was advertised in the local press, here in Bowen Island and far away in Omsk, Siberia! A world wide coverage!
