2 weeks after the Vienna City Marathon I wanted to check my running pace. In between rehearsals with Daniel Harding (Mahler, Song from the Earth) and the Neill Shicoff-Gala at the opera, I finished the Salzburg half-marathon in 1:37:01 yesterday! Typically for Salzburg, it rained all day, but the run was fun. I headed back to Vienna to play at the opera the same night. Now we continue the upcoming week with concerts in Cologne, Luxemburg and Vienna with Daniel Harding. I’m very much looking forward to playing the flute solo in Mahler’s “The Farewell” with Matthias Goerne singing.
