Lesson with Bashkirov on Beethoven op 10 no 2. Let’s say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…I was gonna promote him to the B dude title but it’s not happening this time. Lunch was delicious, wonderfully prepared by the lovely Peggy S Czyzak-Dannenbaum, with Florian Leonhard and Gabor Takacs-nagy. We spent a gorgeous afternoon talking about music, life and eating cake- happy Alex:-) Most academy students are hosted by people who live in Verbier. I am blessed with the most wonderful couple, who have become my Swiss family 3 years ago. Today it was their daughter’s birthday so we celebrated in style this eve with bubbly, great food and lots of laughter. And cake! Life is good, Verbier is wonderful!
