Yesterday saw day three of rehearsal for our tour to San Sebastian, Edinburgh and Warsaw. We were at Henry Wood Hall in Borough, one of the busiest Orchestral rehearsal venues in London. It’s a beautiful building, a converted church in a perfect Georgian Square. We were there rehearsing the Mendelssohn concerto with violinist Alina Ibragimova, which we’ll also be going on to record once the tour is finished. Here are a few pictures from the rehearsal.
On Friday evening I popped into Henry Wood Hall, where we are currently rehearsing and recording Donizetti’s Maria di Rohan with Opera Rara and Sir Mark Elder. Below are a few pics – not many people around as was taken during the break! What I was surprised about was how we go about recording a piece like this. I had assumed we would rehearse for several days and then record, but it doesn’t work like that – instead there is perhaps a day of rehearsal and then a rehearsal of each section followed by a recording of it. So the opera is built up over several days rather than being recorded in one go. It’s taking just over a week to record and rehearse, though the vocalists and choir have been rehearsing for some time previous to this. Should make for a fanatastic performance at the Royal Festival Hall on Saturday!
