    I once went to a proms concert in London, I think in 2001.
    The programme was Chopin Piano Concerto No1 and Bruckners 8th!.
    What we didn't know that as an encore, the pianist played two solo Chopin pieces (I think it was two of his Ettudes).
    The first half of the concert stretched over the hour mark. Well you can guess how long B's 8th is! That occupied pt 2 of the concert.
    Because it was the proms, I got a cheap ticket, so I had to stand for 3 hours!!...Goodness it was a mircacle I didn't go to hopspital suffering from fatigue...

    I've just come back from a concert in Manchester. The program was as follows:

    Gershwin - Rhapsody in Blue
    Ravel - Piano Concerto
    Interval
    Ravel - Piano Concerto for LH
    Gershwin - Piano Concerto

    I found the program thrilling yet comfortably concise. There should be more back-to-back concerto concerts to celebrate a particular instrument. What do y'all think?

    As I said, one of my Dream Concerts was Radu Lupu playing Beethoven 5th concerto with Sir Neville Marriner conducting. This was part of a three concert cycle in which Radu played all 5 concertos. In the 3rd concert we played Leonora No. 3, the 5th concerto and then the 7th symphony to complete the program.
    Those were all dream concerts!

    Here's another I'd just love to hear:

    Schoenberg - 5 Orchestral Pieces
    Brahms - Piano Concerto No.2
    Interval
    Mahler - 6th Symphony

    It's a long recital but it's doable at least!

    Let's say:

    Beethoven - 'Coriolan' Overture
    Poulenc - Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani
    ***
    Sibelius - Symphony No.4

    A rather dark repertoir, I admit.

    Nielsen: Rhapsodic Overture ("Journey to the Faroe Islands")-- perfect opener!
    Kabalevsky: Piano Concerto No. 3 in D
    Hindemith: Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl von Weber

    A huge undertaking, but a wonderful concert!
