Nicky's Notes


Minneapolis and the Majestic Mississippi

‘Allow me to share a few personal snapshots from this week in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I had the pleasure of playing with the incredible Minnesota Orchestra, Andrew Litton and Leonard Elschenbroich. The musicians were kind, warm and communicative and the halls packed full four nights in a row. We played the music of two German giants of classical music, Brahms and Beethoven.

I have once before set eyes on the Mississippi River, that was in New Orleans, Louisiana. To try to comprehend its size leaves me awestruck. The video and photos absolutely don’t do it justice. Sorry, I tried!
