Singing week with Susi Huber, October 8 - 31, 2003
Together with the ad hoc choir of Susi Huber, the 'Susians', we experienced romantic Venice. Musically, these days were mainly dedicated to Mozart's Nocturnos. Our rehearsal place with wonderful acoustics was the sacristy of the San Geremia church at the Canale Grande.
On walks in Venice we walked in the footsteps of Tintoretto *), Tiepolo **) and Titian ***). Excursions took us to Burano and Torcello, where we were impressed by the Romanesque church.
In our free time we enjoyed the atmosphere of Venice
*) We admired Tintoretto's works in the Chiesa della Madonna del'Orto and in the. Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
**) Giovanni Battista Tiepolo created admirable frescoes in the Scuola Grande dei Carmini. I saw his most magnificent work later in Würzburg.
***) my favourite painting by Titian is Danať
