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

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__4EmRRYbO8

    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
    ... yet for us will still remain the holy German art... (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg)

    Auf die Berge will ich steigen,
    Wo die dunklen Tannen ragen,
    Bäche rauschen, Vögel singen,
    Und die stolzen Wolken jagen.
    Heinrich Heine

    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....

    Sure, I'll come And you should come to Hamburg some day. We could go to a concert, you know - at the Elbphilarmonie

    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...
