Deserted Red Square, a single official car outside the gate to the Kremlin, St Basil's Cathedral
pitch black, rain on the cobbles, police out in force. Is it a still from a John Le Carré story?
Nope, the Oxford Orchestra da Camera have taken me with them on a tour of Eastern Europe
and Russia, and have come to Moscow to play Shostakovich and Elgar. I'd been warned,
before the orchestra's previous concert in a vast concrete stadium on the banks of the Volga
near Samara, not to go drinking with the brass section afterwards, but I ended up doing exactly
that at the official reception at two o'clock in the morning. My head was still pounding the next
day after the early flight back to Moscow and I only managed to take two pictures of the city
before the same concert that evening at the Moscow Conservatoire. If I looked a mess (I'd
spent what was left of the night before in the suit the orchestra's management had bought me
in lieu of a fee), then my director was no better. He turned up at this most prestigious location,
amongst the great and good of the Moscow music world, looking haggard in a crumpled jacket,
jeans and plimsolls. Not much of an advertisement for the British film industry. We survived,
but the film didn't - the orchestra's management later ran out of money and the film, a
promotional piece in E flat, was abandoned at the edit stage. Having also been graciously
allowed to film from among the orchestra during rehearsals, I knew I had some beautiful
material in the can but I never even saw the rushes. Music, travel and film - my perfect
combination for a production - was not to be.
