Fantastic concert!
Mark is an excellent artist and performer.
The program was extremely well chosen:
Easily digestived appetizer
Delicious main course
Sparkling dessert
Rossini: Lady by the lake
.

Also an exhibition of paintings by Edit Dunai
(can be seen in some of the pics)
She uses lots of blue colours in different shades.
Water and clouds are the main elements in her paintings.
- not really my type of paintings
