    I heard Yuri Temirkanov conduct the St. Petersburg Phil with Garrick Ohlsson in Brahms' Piano Concerto No.1 and Shostakovich's 5th Symphony. Both were magnificent, and the 5th Symphony was easily the most pulverizing performance I have ever heard. My tickets were in the 3rd row, and as I left my ears were ringing a bit from the overwhelming volume!

    Two concerts to tell you about:

    A month ago we travelled to Seattle to see Hilary Hahn perform the Bruch Gm. Also the orchestra performed Prokofiev 5. A good concert and good weekend away. Also we went to the Chihuly museum which is terrific. And the Amazon bookstore, yes, a bricks and mortar shop for Amazon. Anyway, at intermission and after the concert Hilary Hahn was signing autographs. I got in line twice. I had her sign my Brahms cd, but afterwards, I bought her Tchaikovsky/ Higdon cd so I could get in line twice.

    She's genuinely nice. She talked to everyone. She asked all the kids in line what pieces they were working on. I told her how I was an adult learner. We had a quick chat. I didn't want to take too long with her as the queue was quite long.

    The other concert I want to tell you about happened two nights ago. I heard members of the orchestra perform Bernstein Prelude Fugue and Riffs, so exciting. Then a piece by a naturalized Canadian Morawetz, Edward MacDowell's second piano concerto performed by Allesio Bax. And the second half was Copland's Third Symphony. Terrific concert. I had never heard the MacDowell piece before, it's pretty good. Very difficult, lots of notes. To perform the Copland the orchestra added many extras, the stage was full.

    Yes indeed.

    Less terrific is the Murano Island (Venice) visit, which includes the hardest shop selling you'll ever experience. Avoid, unless you can get a free private Venetian teak boat ride. One way only, must return on the public vaporetto.

    Last night, Mrs Pat & I spent a delightful 3 hours listening to a local semi-pro wind ensemble, the Phoenix Concert Band http://www.phoenixband.co.uk/.
    They're not the Berlin Phil and the programme was mainly popular show tunes mixed with some contemporary compositions. But it was really good to see a bunch of friends clearing enjoying the challenge and each other's company making music, with proceeds going to a child cancer charity. Tea and cakes were served at the interval, with the band mucking in with the audience.
    Great concerts are memorable and wonderful things (Ida Haendel, Alexis Weissenberg...), but don't neglect the small events that remind us what collective music-making is all about.

    I have just come from a performance of Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 and the oratorio "Christus am Ölberge" at the church in Blankenese, Hamburg - performed by a local orchestra and choir.

    Maybe at a bigger concert hall - like the Elphi - this orchestra and the soloists would not sound as convincing. But this was a small venue, a little over 200 seats, and the sound rather reminded me of a rock concert. And Beethoven, after all, is the first rocker It was fantastic, and my hands still hurt somewhat from all the applause.

    Next one coming: the Alpensinfonie!

    This has been a weekend FULL of great concerts for me. On Friday night, the U.S. Army Field Band came to town. They are truly a world class ensemble. Aside from the usual patriotic stuff, they performed wind ensemble transcriptions of Stravinsky's Firebird and Mendelssohn's Sonata no. 2 for clarinet and basset horn (with two soloists from the band) that were quite nice. There was so much incredible virtuosity in that concert, it really increased my respect for the U.S. military bands. Top notch musicians.

    Last night I saw Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. They are touring America right now and fortunately my hometown was one of their stops. It was a fabulous concert.
    The program was:
    Aaron Copland- Quiet City
    Mozart- Piano Concerto No. 9
    Mozart- Symphony No. 29
    Shostakovich- Piano Concerto No. 1
    The pianist was Inon Barnatan.

    And in about an hour, my local symphony is doing a rather intriguing program where they will bring in a painter and have her "paint what she hears." It's an all-Copland program with Quiet City (I get to hear it twice in 24 hours!), Nonet for Strings, and Appalachian Spring. Curious to see what the artist comes up with.

    Would love to see ASMF live. My favourite orchestra. I can imagine they were amazing!

    Oh trust me, it was a concert I'll not soon forget. The way they articulated and moved together was astounding. Even the occasional rubato was executed perfectly ensemble-wide. It was as if they were machines connected with wires.
