Thank you, I didn't know there was a new Bartoli, and now I have TWO reasons to find it.

I hope to be there on 10 December, Ruth. And meet both you and Mary??? oh my goodness, that would be exciting and scary, but perhaps a bit less scary to meet more than one of you together, and in the context of a shared delight in music.

and I was so deep in envisaging this event that I forgot to wish you a wonderful tour. I do, of course! Looks like you will get home a few times in between concerts?

Just saw what you are playing on 10 Dec - how utterly blissful.

Jean, absolutely! Delightfully scarey to meet up. Will email you perhaps when I get back from my break - middle of next week? Or would you suggest something else? Ruth, renewed best wishes!

I am so impressed: you are becoming a digital download, an MP3. We can all rip & burn you!

Seriously, well done. And I DO love the poster - is that how they sell the old music?

Your blog is beautiful, rich and colourful as your life seems to be. I too am a cellist and avid lover of meditation, Bach, art, food and other such delights so was immediately attracted by the content of your writing. But more than that it seems to tell a tender and unique story, written so eloquently with each post transporting me into your world for the minutes in which I read.
Your talents are quite something, and as a P.S. your husband's paintings are glorious.

Why does everything interesting happen in Bordeaux when I can't go? I can't be in Mérignac tonight because I'm so busy getting ready to go to your part of France tomorrow. I hope it's enjoyable and sorry about the rain.

Thanks Kate. oooh shucks I'm blushing...

what am I playing, jean? (I kid you not.)

sorry i missed you lesley. nice town by the way and excellent oysters and cepes opposite the cathedral in the cafe français...

zhoenw do you think cecilia will give me a share in royalties?

wow! the london gig may be a bit difficult as i have rather a lot of friends and family to see!!!! but also how exciting a prospect to meet you mary and jean too. I hope we can find a time, even if I'm only there as a catalyst for you all to meet and hear some wonderful music.

now i know where you live dale!

Yes, it occured to me that, as your family etc are in London, there will no doubt be a queue to see you after the Barbican concert - but maybe we could just say hello and give you a big hug of appreciation for you blog, as well as the wonderful music? :-)
