    In 10 minutes the opening concert from the newly built Elbphilarmonie in Hamburg begins, broadcast live on YouTube:

    I remember visiting Hamburg for the first time several years ago. As I saw the Elbphilarmonie, towering still half-built but already impressive in the middle of the mighty river, I thought: "By the time this here is completed, I will come and live in this city". Today is the grand opening, and today I got my residence permit for Germany. I will depart for my new homeland on the weekend - this time forever. And for now I am celebrating

    Thank you!

    The concert starts with a half-hour delay. I love German punctuality! (Not that I really have a right to complain).

    One of my favorites, the Dvorak cello concerto with Yo-Yo Ma, Kurt Masur, and the New York Philharmonic.
    I still remember the Dvorak Cello Concerto with Ma/NYPO/Maazel. Ferociously good. Live from Lincoln Center, PBS 9/18/07.

    I was being ironic. The cost is ten times more than was planned AND they could not even get the opening concert to start on time.

    But Beethoven sounds nice, and I will stop complaining. Not on this day....

    Oh heck, Ferkel... I mean Merkel is also there. She seems to love music - just about the only her redeeming quality

    I am waiting for the prelude to Parsifal...
