Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment players give violin lesson to waiter

Thursday, 26 May 2011

A touring British orchestral musician has given a waiter an impromptu violin lesson in a restaurant in Modena. Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment violist Annette Isserlis was dining with three fellow musicians when the waiter brought out his student violin. She then gave him his first ever violin lesson, and the next day he came to watch the musicians rehearse. The OAE players are touring with the London Sinfonietta, and were in Modena to perform Heiner Goebbels's Songs of Wars I have Seen.
