Berliner Ensemble für Kammerchor und historische Instrumente

   Yesterday I went to the concert of the Renaissance music. And since I never take pics at such events, no pics, my lovely readers. There was one guy there, however, who constantly tried to force his camera to record it, was sitting and standing up, sitting and standing up, walking around with camera's tripod, pissing off everyone. Why go to such an event when instead of enjoying it, you walk like an idiot taking pictures? To sho to friends - look, I went to such concert! And when they ask what was played - uhm... dunno, but look at the pics!

And now my perfect pretending to be a German woman - I said nothing and pretended I understood all what the Conductor was saying. He sometimes explained to the audience what will be played (something about S. Rossi) and I just nodded... but yes, of course, you're right...
I guess it was meant for German tourists, and I somehow barged in, sitting and enjoying, not understanding a single word in German.

   So, for those who are interested, a list of what they played (in German, cause you know, I got a leaflet...)
The Music Conductor: Otto Ruthenberg (he was also playing instruments, mostly flute-like).
Also, as some of you maybe know, I have drums fetish, some obsession. And here one lady played frame drum but with stick, and the effect... oh no, words can't describe how this sounded. Deep, almost tasty as blood, pulsing and velvety, resonating with yer pulse... Frame drums are awesome, really.
In bold - those I liked^^
