Augsburg, Germany 2001

After conducting in Lyon at the beginning of March, 2001, I was in Paris on my way back to America. Just before confirming my flight, however, I received an unexpected last minute invitation to replace a conductor in an upcoming concert with the Augsburg Philharmonic in Germany. Thus, I stayed a bit longer in Paris to prepare the program which included works of Werner Egk and Maurice Ravel with mezzo soprano Lorraine DiSimone. Here is a photo of the opera house where we rehearsed in Augsburg.

My good friend Debra Fernandes attended this concert, and a few years later we recorded a CD together in Prague.
