The Warsaw - Berlin Sleeper

David Butcher and I spent last Wednesday working in Warsaw, exploring possibilities for extending Britten Sinfonia's work in Krakow to the capital. After a splendid meal - traditional pierogi - near the Royal Castle we took the overnight sleeper to Berlin - very John le Carre, very Len Deighton, and certainly more fun than a flight.

The Konzerthaus in Berlin is hosting this year's International Artist Managers' Association conference: many productive meetings which should lead to more touring in the coming seasons, and a chance to catch up on some of the issues affecting the music business at present.
