The most touching concert I was ever able to experience. I can't even tell exactly why but there were these deeply emotional moments I just felt goose humps all over my arms. Conducted by Sir Simon Rattle (just like Carmen), Nachtlied op. 108 was composed by German pianist Robert Schumann.
Schumann is one of the greatest representatives of the Romantic era and this clearly reflects in his works.
Time literally flew by. I couldn't believe when everything was over after two hours of beautiful music.
Today is the very last day and I will attend a concert by van Beethoven, again conducted by Rattle. I'm definitely looking forward (and already know what I'm going to wear - something, which freaked me out the last days ;)).
For Schumann's concert, I chose my very first more elegant dress. I received it when I was 15 and can still remember the disaster in one of Selfridges' cabins. I wanted this dress so badly and I was just too small for it. No problem for Daddy Cool, who remembered the possibility to shorten it (wow something I didn't even think of at all at that moment) and from that on it was mine. I love it with all my heart since I wore it for so many special occasions... and it seems as if it is as timeless as a dress could be. Very young but still understatement. This time, I didn't go for my signature red lips but for a slightly warmer tone. This berry colour builds a completely new contrast to my skin and the black outfit. The earrings are secretly my mum's and were just exceptionally given to me for this event (Mum, they're still alive, I didn't loose them & you can relax now).
