Mozart and Squirrels

I have accrued the minor matter of 32 days flex and I finally took a day of it today.

I was off to a lunchtime concert at LSO St Lukes near Old Street. I decided to head off early and take some pics.




St Lawrence Jewry church. We'll go inside in a bit....


The Guildhall


The Guildhall museum.


Right that church!








Some pics on my stroll





Does this look incongruous.......


Bunhill Cemetery


There were loads of Squirrels!


John Bunyan



Nice to see there were bird feeders and this insect house!


John Wesley







St Luke's




Trish finally arrived.... and after a drink we went back to Bunhill (I stuck a small telephoto on)






The Squirrels were being fed!


The ladies doing so were hoping for Jay's!



The Jay did come and nick some nuts!

An unexpected find in November!


The concert was part of LSO St Luke's Mozart season.

Vilde Frang - Violin
Michail Lifits - Piano

playing

Violin Sonata in F major K376 by W. A. Mozart
Violin Sonata in G major K379 by W. A. Mozart
Violin Sonata in E flat major K481 by W. A. Mozart

Frang and Lifits are both young and incredibly talented. The pieces were beautifully played with real intensity shown by the two musician, no going through the motions here. One of the best concerts I've been to this year.

Love the window in the church.
And yes, the contrast in old/new buildings does look incongruous.

the squidgies were so obliging.. and great to have the jay visit..

next time, we'll go armed with nuts and me with an appropriate camera and lens!

and a couple of very talented young musicians!
