Do you love October? I do. Make that LOVE. If September sees the official start of autumn, it’s in October the changing leaves heighten in intensity, the air feels crisper, cleaner, the days sparkle. My sister and I share this month as our birth month, and I further share my actual birthday with my best friend since 3rd grade. It is the month of my wedding anniversary. It’s Italian Heritage Month. It’s my little one helping me pick the perfect sugar pumpkins for pie and of me helping him come up with an awesome Halloween costume (nothing decided yet). And... it’s the start of the concert season. Listen this morning for violinist Christina Day Martinson with the Boston Baroque playing “Autumn” from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, and please check out what Maestro Martin Pearlman has planned for the upcoming season which starts October 15th. You’ll see that Christina is the featured performer for BB’s New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day concerts of Baroque masterworks.
Here's Christina talking about her ornamentation:
And here are Christina and Martin with three of Biber's Mystery Sonatas from our Fraser Performance Studio:

Hi Laura, Yes, October is my favorite month as well. I do not do well with the heat, and also October is so very beautiful..cool and refreshing. The changing of the leaves is so very beautiful, and I find fall decorating every bit as delightful as Christmas decorating....I do not do all the things you do, but I still love it. I am delighted that your son, Giancarlo, is helping with the pumpkins and the pies as well. I did hear you talking about him on the air the other day....wonderful to hear! He must be really getting to be a big boy now I remember when he was born!... Yes, it is a wonderful time for children and adults as well my little grand niece went picking apples the other day so adorable!! October even has 31 days, and I love every one of them!! smiles Glad we have the same favorite month... hugs Elly from Braintree
