“You were all heroes! No other orchestra would have stayed on stage under those conditions”, complimented Zubin Mehta after the outdoor concert in Campinas.

The next evening we performed Beethoven, Mozart and Brahms at the Theatro Municipal de Paulina. Campinas is a 2 hour bus ride from San Paolo. In the evening we rehearsed and performed Mozart and Mahler at the beautiful Sala Sao Paolo; an old train station completely re-fitted to be a concert hall. In the audience were Brazilian students from the Buchmann-Mehta Academy, University of Tel Aviv.
