A violinist and an oboist in one group, three brass players, a French horn, a trumpet and a trombone in the other.Both groups playing in different parts of the centre.The music was Haydn, cheerful young Mozart and Vivaldi.Played as it should be, for ordinary people like me. No pretension. The music caressed the passers by: it wasn't trying to impress them with its own arcane excellencew.It was SIMPLY excellent.A tribute to the old Soviet system.I had thought that there was possibly a White Scooter system starting there, at may last visit. No sign of it this time. Are such ideas afoot elsewhere?
