Owner Stefano Nicolao & wife Suzanna graciously provided an extended tour of their huge Atelier that is packed with gorgeous costumes, fabrics, headwear, handcrafted shoes, braids & buttons.
Jory Vinikour performed a highly diverse, technically demanding, and beautifully executed program at Weill Hall on Thursday, December 10. Jory's outstanding musicality, virtuosity, and deep connection with his instrument was evident in each piece he played.
I was fortunate to be able to attend Mahan Esfahani’s morning performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations at The Fine Foundation’s Performance Gallery in Durlston Castle, Dorset, England on September 6. Esfahani performed on a handsome Keith Hill harpsichord (after Taskin) with a full blooming sound.
