Dear all,

hope this finds you all very well! Sorry for the long radio silence, (writing) habits are harder to build than it seems. Anyway, I've recommended James Clear's Atomic Habits before and now it's time to go on step further and apply his fantastic 3-2-1 Thursday Newsletter to the Performing Arts.
Here goes - to be refined in the coming weeks:

Tickets & Details

2 Albums I can very much recommend:

Kian Soltani: Cello Unlimited For this album, Kian reimagined his favorite movie soundtracks for a supersized cello ensemble and recorded every note himself in multitrack recording sessions. Definitely listen to it and the beautiful melodies of Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore and Kian himself.
Martin Fröst: Vivaldi Martin got himself and us 3 Concertos for Clarinet in Orchestra by Andreas N. Tarkmann who brilliantly uses various themes by Antonio Vivaldi, who never got to know a clarinet ..
