    11th January - Warsaw National Philharmony:

    Faure - Elegie
    Saint-Saens - Cello Concerto No. 1
    Ravel - II Suite from Daphnis et Chloe (the version with choir) - it was supposed to be the whole piece, but now it seems to be only the suite.

    Lionel Bringuier - cond.
    Gautier Capucon - cello

    Best regards, Dr

    I am completely freaking out about just discovering this April 9 concert on our own campus:

    Living Sounds with Richard Danielpour, composer

    Wow! Wow! Wow!

    I've also gotten to see Terry Riley through my place of employment (though I have nothing to do with the Blair School of Music other than to help pay their bills).

    I really should look at the calendar more often.

    [Edit: When I look closer, the article doesn't exactly say Danielpour will be there. But then it doesn't exactly say he won't either. Well, I may have to hold one of their payments hostage to find out I guess.]

    They played the whole thing finally. It was great!

    Were I more independently wealthy, I'd fit it into my calendar of galas. . . Chicago and Muti, with the Schubert 9?-- God I'd love to be at that one!!

    On Sunday I will be attending my first classical performance, which I am very excited for. I will be seeing my local Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra perform Mozart's Symphony No. 31 (Paris) and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 14. Then on the following Thursday I will be seeing them perform Haydn's String Quartet in D minor, selections from Bartok's Duo's for Two Violins, and the String Trio in C minor by the great Ludwig Van. Then to top it all off, after a 15 month lockout, the Minnesota Orchestra returns next weekend for a homecoming concert where Stanislaw Skrowaczewski conducts his own orchestration of Bach's Fugue in D minor, followed by Strauss's Don Juan, and finally, ending with Beethoven's epic 3rd (Eroica) Symphony. I will be attending the 2nd performance of this concert on Saturday the 8th, I will be going to this concert with my Grandfather who introduced me to classical, has never been to see a live classical performance in his life. Needless to say I am very excited for these next 10 or so days

    April 1st Royal Festival Hall
    ASMF
    Lark Ascending
    Mozart Piano Concerto 20 (Perahia)
    Elgar Enigma Variations

    Never seen Perahia play before but as far as I am concerned the man is supreme with Mozart so just about wetting myself with excitement

    Tomorrow Gidon Kremer is playing the Sibelius Concerto in Montreal. I love his old recoding of the piece.

    March 30, Barbican Hall, London

    SCRIABIN Symphony No 1
    LISZT Piano Concerto No 2
    SCRIABIN Symphony No 4 (‘The Poem of Ecstasy’)

    Valery Gergiev conductor
    Denis Matsuev piano
    London Symphony Chorus
    Simon Halsey chorus director
    London Symphony Orchestra


    While I'm there I'll check out the city as well, but who cares, that's so secondary.
    When I heard Prometheus performed I knew I wanted to hear more Scriabin live. Also, it may help me to get over these pieces.
    It seems I get obsessed about certain pieces and it doesn't go away until I hear them live. It happened with Mahler 2.. I was listening to it all the bloody time... and then I finally heard it in concert a year ago and I haven't listened to it ever since.

    I got in the mail yesterday the brochure for next season's Vancouver Symphony concerts.

    Plenty to choose from
    Yo Yo Ma performs Dvorak
    Angela Hewitt performs Nights in the Garden of Spain
    Britten's War Requiem
    Tasmin Little performs Korngold vn
    DSCH 7
    Mahler 5
    DSCH pc 2 and Sibelius 5 on the same night
    A pops concert of Middle Eastern strings

    And Lang Lang is coming to town to perform Mozart #17. Tickets are more expensive than Yo Yo Ma. I'll skip the Lang Lang, it'll be packed and I'm not impressed by his persona.

    Some much to chose. I usually make my own series of five, but I might go all the way and see ten concerts.

    Getting to and from downtown late at night without a car in the rain isn't always pleasant, but a night at the symphony is usually better than a night in front of the TV

    On the day of Lang Lang's performance, I bet a good portion of TC will be there-closet admirers!

    March 13, 15 and 16 (I am going the 15) at La Scala:

    Otto Nicolai: Overture from "Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor"
    Elgar: Falstaff op.68
    Tchaikovsky: Symphony No.5
    I don't know what has to do Tchaikovsky 5 with the the Merry Wives or Falstaff but anyway a good programme.

    Daniel Barenboim, Filarmonica della Scala
