Christmas today, well in Holland at least, second Christmas day now. Boxing day in the UK I think. Yesterday we went to the Dominicuskerk in Amsterdam during the day. There's a festival there for everyone, with free food and drinks and even a christmans dinner. We didn't go there though, it was very crowded. The athmosphere is great though, with lots of stuff to do, a.o. plaing chess and checkers against against former (world-) champions.
I haven't been playing this holiday. I wanted to let go a bit and have a fresh start. I have been listening to a lot of performers, my favourites now are Horowitz, Ma, Maisky, Argerich. Well, you know the standard stuff I guess. I am looking for freedom in interpretation (that's such a pretentious word...)
