Tonight’s the last night on a seriously whistle stop Spanish tour by the Liverpool Phil and I got to go over there for an even more whistle stopping twenty four hours in Alicante last Friday to cover the first gig at the Auditorio de la Diputación. First things first when covering classical gigs in new venues is finding out what the rules were and this was one of the best results ever as I got to sit in for the whole concert, with a gap between me and the audience, and just stand up and take some photographs during the big moments and with the second part being a performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No.10, the moments don’t get much bigger and I spent most of the night on the edge of my little fold up seat! It was a packed out gig and a packed out twenty four hours for us but I also got to do shoot rehearsals and backstage before the gig, and even had time for a proper sit down tapas affair of Octopus, Albondigas, Anchovies and Aubergine (try saying that after a few Riojas) before heading home the next morning to an afternoon of Crazy Golf, Liverpool Biennial style and I’ll post up some photographs of that next. Oh and, contrary to popular song, the rain in Spain does not stay mainly in the plain! Looking forward to hearing how the rest of the tour went which can be checked out on The Phil’s blog or that of trumpeter Brendan Ball!
Whilst I also blog some of my commercial work and commissions outside of Liverpool on my main portfolio site, Rivercool is dedicated to my work in and around the city and maybe sometimes just a little bit further afield as I work regularly across the region. Rivercool features both photo and video content from past and present and will include other photo news from the city and beyond.
