Unusual Concert Venues

I was playing in Israel with the London Symphony Orchestra. One of the concert venues was  Ein Gev, a kibbutz, situated in a rather remote spot.  It was very large, the biggest kibbutz in Israel, I was told.

It was a hive of industry inside although there was an underlying sense of tranquillity.  There was ample room for the orchestra to play before the enthusiastic audience.

Before the concert we were treated to a wonderful meal, prepared in a loving way and in return we did our very best to show how much we appreciated their lavish hospitality.  They never tired of the many encores we gave.

Next day we were invited to a reception given by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra where I met some musicians I had known in London.  It’s a small world, music.
