Lovely reception at the Janni Church here in St Petersburg.... just in the airport, waiting to get a flight home.
Receptive to all, the audience were great - left in stunned silence at the end of one of my Russian introductions (probably awe)... but they laughed in all the right places at everything else, so something must have been right!
They liked our rendition of the only Borodin male quartet piece (he was born here too) - four guys serenading the same woman!
The Estonians enjoyed our Estonian folk encore too... last week.
Very fine tour up north... and the mild winter helped! Coming in summer would also be fantastic!
We were looked after splendidly...
