Casa da Musica, seen from above.
After six marvellous years it is now time to say good bye to my wonderful Orquestra Sinfonica do Porto Casa da Musica and Casa da Musica itself. Thanks to everyone, who made this possible: the devoted musicians of the orchestra, the administration and everybody in the staff, from librarian to the managing colleagues, public relations department, and stage managers – simply everyone. Thank you Sonia, Sara, and Dario, thank you Alfredo, thank you Andrew and Antonio Jorge. It was an unforgettable experience which I will never want to miss. I am more than grateful to have been able to contribute my humble share to orchestra and institution, and I am puzzled and touched that our last concert went so well and in harmony.
