Flagler Concert - '17 Finally

Friends at the Concert
A few evening ago was the last of the 2017 "Flagler Museum Music Series".  I have written about these in several post and find them to be a wonderful escape.  Plus I enjoy the music.  I have been attending these since the series inception in 1999. I introduced a friend to the venue and music and she liked it so much she became the series underwriter.  I love attending as her guest and we are always treated special. One of the benefits is the event photographer is always around. "Oh darn - I just hate having my photo taken".  "Not".   

The performance was by the St. Petersburg Piano Quartet.  Billed as one of the world's most esteemed ensembles.  A Grammy nomination is one of their accomplishments as well as "Best Record" in both Stereo Review and Gramophone

The program consisted of Quartet for Piano and Strings No.2 by Mozart and Piano Quartet No. 1 by Brahms. Both pieces lovely.  The Brahma was anything but an lullaby - spited and exciting. After the music there is always champagne and deserts. A beautiful evening.  

I look forward to next year's Series. Thank you Roe for sponsoring such worthwhile music and having me as your guest.  A good friend.
