A Delighful Afternoon

Cecylia Arzewsky ( played a noon time recital at the Emory University Carlos Museum. The program included two works by Bach: a partita and a sonata. Ms. Arzewsky performed these difficult works with great aplomb and assurance. My only complaint about her playing was that, at times, her bowing seemed to be off and a subtle screech was apparent. Her instrument was also bright and not all that warm. But I quibble.

Afterward, I had lunch with a friend at a nice little Italian restaurant near the Emory Campus. It helps to have the person recommending an Italian restaurant be Italian herself. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
