Day five in Switzerland/the final concert

Another view of Rougemont Church. The concert was by Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Violine, and Mihaela Ursuleasa, Piano. I knew that I would like them when they first took the shoes...they were bare foot! They are truly entertainers in the total sense of the word...they are performers times bordering insanity...the energy that they brought to the church I'm sure was the reason for the thunder and lightening storm which started at the onset of their playing and continues even now but less intense. They both are Romanian from Gypsie fact Patricia's mother is a Gypsie violinist and her father plays the Gypsie cymbals...not quite sure what that is. But you can see how the fiery gene in their blood has enhansed their performance...that together with their musical ability make for a first rate show.
