Sardinia 2009 SPO, originally uploaded by davidoakley@btopenworld.com.

A short post to thank everyone for making the Sardinia trip such an enjoyable occasion, especially to Robin McEwan who coaxed a very acceptable sound (according to our enthusiastic audiences) from what turned out to be an unusually hybrid orchestra. I also want to thank our visiting musicians, Nikos, Alan, Emily, Joy, Llinos, Angiolo and the Sardinians, Alessio, Theresa, Mattia, Antonello and Inaria.
An enormous thankyou to Robert Meoni who played so beautifully in both concerts and whose phone conversations to Alghero were the catalyst for getting the trip off the ground.
Finally, once again, I cannot find thanks enough for Silvana Pinna, Uccio Oppes (from the Istituto Artistico e Musicale Giuseppe Verdi) and Signor Usai from the Parco Naturale di Porto Conte for their amazing generosity with their time, entertainment and hospitality.
Orchestra members might like to hear that we have been invited back to play again, this time in some ancient Nuraghic remains; what do you think.
If people send me their best photos, I can upload them onto the Flickr photostream and you can view them from the blog by clicking ‘more photos’ at the bottom (sorry that some extraneous pictures from our wedding seem to have found their way there, but two orchestra members did play on that occasion)
