When our concert in Vilnius, Lithuania ( supposed to be tonight) was cancelled a few months ago we decided that the better part of valor would be too proceed by bus to out next engagement in the Italian Alps. We've spent two days riding along and have now arrived in Brixen where we're staying - and in whose cathedral we performed last August. Very fun to see the region in summer and then, so soon, in winter. Weather conditions all over Italy are dire - but not where we are.We slept (and ate bratwurst) in Nuremberg, Germany last night then came up over the Brenner pass to Brixen. Very beautiful! Our concert is on Friday night, which will be the second to last on this tour. Home on Monday!
