    Sure enough, Serkin did cancel, but not because of the fire--he has pneumonia.

    Was meant to see Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé a few years ago but couldn't go as I ended up ill so hopefully this time, I should be OK. Well, I have to be as seeing Joshua Bell the week after!!!!!

    Interesting programme, and an interesting soloist. She was a somewhat controversial winner of the most recent Leeds Piano Competition, but I agreed with the result. The Ravel concerto is a VERY different piece from the Brahms B flat which she played in the Competition final, so I wonder what she'll make of it.

    I'm seeing Pierre-Laurent Aimard on November 23, he will be performing Ravel's G Major concerto with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. David Afkham will be conducting. Richard Strauss Rosenkavalier-suite & Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche will also be performed and also Ravel's La Valse. So it should be good.. I saw Pierre-Laurent Aimard in April he performed Beethoven's Hammerklavier Sonata and three Debussy etudes and Scriabin 9th sonata. This performance was right after a terror attack in Stockholm. So mr. Pierre-Laurent Aimard took the flowers he recived and threw all over stage and dedicate his encore, Bach's 1 Prelude from Das Woltempiereed Klavier to the victims and relatives to this tragedy of this terrible event. It was on of the most movining encores I have ever heard. The concerthouse was completely quiet during this three minutes.. It was beautiful.. I am looking forward to se him again. He is such an amazing pianist!

    I'm sorry for the post above. It is very badly written. My excuse is that I was a bit intoxicated while writing it (and that I'm not very good at English).

    Local symphony (Huntsville) is playing La Mer on Friday night. That is in my top 2 favorite pieces of music of all time.
    But alas, I will be sitting in a pit orchestra for a musical that night. SO bummed that I have to miss it. It does, however, appear that I will be able to at least attend their dress rehearsal for it.

    Beethoven piano concerto no 4 and encored with Bach Gigue from the French Suite no 5.

    She gave a wonderful performance. Hope you enjoyed the recital!
