David and Jacqueline visit The Pfalz

Last Autumn, Mark and Stuart met Áedán by chance in a bar in London and told him that they would be going to Ludwigshafen am Rhein (opposite Mannheim) to record some music by Shostakovich that Mark had reconstructed from piano scores and film soundtracks. This was the perfect opportunity to visit good friends in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse (Peter, Brigitte, Konstantin and Miriam), see their vines, watch a professional recording being made, meet various old friends, including Rafael from Berlin, see the sights of Ludwigshafen (BASF) and Mannheim, and of course eat too much! We had a great week: it was super just to get away and be with friends!
