Since I will miss the 2018 edition, I'm signing myself up for 2019! Time to get to Bulgaria again. It's been too many years. Last time, I was there, Bulgaria was not part of the EU!

"Last time I was in Bulgaria" is a conversation starter that one doesn't hear very often! ... at least I haven't heard it...

We had the national music festival this weekend. Next year I think I will try to time the party to coincide with that.

I suspect Shadow has been fructified. (Mods, read that carefully before you delete it).

Anyone want a puppy?

It looks as if the party will be around the 12 -13 July weekend.

I have provisionally booked the soloist and the tuner based on those dates.

It is ideal if I can get it close enough to the annual folk music festival so visitors can do both, without clashed.

Anyone fancy a tour of a factory producing fiddles of various sizes? I could organise that.

It has also occurred to me that I might be able to organise something else of interest.

Before a party I have all 4 pianos tuned, of course. This year there is also some work to be done on the big Bluthner and on the C Bechstein III. I might be able to get that done whilst guests are present but before the actual day of the concert and recital. Would that be of any interest to anyone?

Latest update:

I now have 6 international visitors booked- 4 from China and 2 from USA. There is still plenty of space, though, as the house has elastic walls. Latecomers get to choose on which piano they sleep.

The soloist is booked to come and give us some chamber music and master classes for those who want them. That will almost certainly be in the music room.

All 4 machines are going to be tuned just before the date. At present there is no action in the Bluthner in the ballroom, but that will be working for the party, of course. There was some excessive wear on the felt on the ends of the keysticks. This certainly didn't help. I hope when that is done that she will play better than ever.
