I’m having a whale of a time with La Folia Barockorchester and the circus in Annaberg-Buchholz. It’s part of the Musikfest Erzgebirge and the show will run for a few days in a beautiful wooden historical mirror tent. Thankfully much of this performance has been immortalised in a YouTube video which you can find below. I feel very inspired by the circus artists as well as the other musicians, and best of all I got to arrange Metallica’s One for viola da gamba solo and baroque orchestra accompaniment. This happens right at the end of the YouTube video and accompanies a spectacular display of Handstanding from Florian Zumkehr.
