I had just came down from Mt Ararat and landed at Riga airport about 20 hrs before the concert. Then I had to drive to Tartu (Estonia) to take my stuff and then drove to Pärnu to take Leonora and rehearse a bit. Next we were driving approx 500 km from Pärnu to Liepaja (Latvija) and after all everything turned out just well. However, half of the program was new to us.
