    Got four concerts coming up. Baltimore Symphony called and told me they were selling 4 tickets for $100. I asked if I could do that for two people so I can bring my fiancee, they say yes. Couldn't say no to hand picking four concerts for two people and only spending $200... So I got this!

    Saturday, February 17 (Strathmore)
    Price - Dances in the Canebrakes (anyone ever heard this? I've never even heard of it)
    Prokofiev - Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Major
    Mussorgsky/Ravel - Pictures at an Exhibition

    Saturday, February 24 (Meyerhoff)
    Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring

    Saturday, April 21 (Meyerhoff)
    Beethoven - Concerto for Violin, Violincello, and Piano
    Mahler - Symhony No. 1 in D Major

    Saturday, June 9 (Strathmore)
    Bernstein - Slava!
    Bernstein - Symphony No. 2
    Shostakovich - Symphony No. 5 in D Minor

    Whoops, I suppose this should go in the future concerts thread. Alright, let me try again! Last night, I saw the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra perform Weill's Violin Concerto, and Stravinsky's Concerto in D and Apollon Musagete. My first time hearing the Weill, wasn't to my liking all that much.

    This afternoon I saw the Emerson Quartet perform three quartets.

    Haydn String Quartet in C, op 20 no 2
    Barber String Quartet, yes that quartet with the adagio for Strings, from Platoon, the movie.
    Beethoven String Quartet in Bb major Op 130 #13, yes that quartet with the Groß Fuge

    It was a terrific concert, I thoroughly enjoyed it. They perform so well together as a unit. Their sound is amazing, intonation and dynamics blend as a perfect unit. It was wonderful to watch their interactions. I sat in the seventh row off to the right side, it was Festival seating, first come first served. I bumped into a couple of people I know. It was a nice afternoon.

    This will be a concert I'll remember for a while. The Gross Fugue was intense, you could see the performers concentration sitting that close. The tune is still running through my head.

    Last concert was an all-Ravel program at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet as the soloist. The program was:

    Pavane pour une Infante Défunte

    Menuet Antique
    (Both scored for orchestra)

    Piano Concerto in G Major

    Piano Concerto for the Left Hand in D Major

    Suite no. 2 from Daphne and Chloe.

    One of the best (and probably most fun) concerts I've ever been to. There was a risk of a pretty bad snowstorm coming through that night, so I think a number of the more trepidatious ticket holders decided to stay home. Made the seats that much better!

    Bavouzet also really delivered! He snuck in a little Debussy with an encore of L'Ilse Joyeuse, which you won't hear me complain about. Will be picking up some of his recordings soon.

    Last night I saw my local professional orchestra perform Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto and his sixth symphony. Stephen Hough was the soloist. It was a terrific performance. The venue was not their usual location, but instead at a smaller concert hall on the university grounds. Better acoustics here. We had a guest conductor David Danzmayr currently employed in Zagreb. He seemed very difficult to follow, a lot of hand waving and not a lot of time keeping. The bassoon came in one bar early in the third movement of the symphony.

    Stephen Hough sounded great, he played with authority. He really seemed to be playing with the orchestra. Some soloists seem to just play their part and hope the orchestra follows. He really seemed to listen and watch. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening.

    I had further to go to get to the venue and it was snowing on the way home. I took the bus and train. I took a thermos of tea and some cookies. I was prepared

    Seen Hough live twice and was amazing both times. Once in an orchestra and the other recital. Was lucky enough to meet him at the latter and he was really nice too

    I made a mistake by buying a season ticket for 9 performances to Budapest Festival Orchestra. I attended a concert of Brahms's 3rd with the Festival Orchestra, it was much better than in Miskolc a year ago. (I still have 3 Miskolc Symphony Orchestra tickets.) I can not enjoy concerts in Miskolc anyomre.

    I heard Pictures at an Exhibition in December in Miskolc. I heard it a couple of times (MÁV Symphony, Hungarian State Opera, Vienna Symphony Orchestra). I did not enjoyed it from the very first notes.

    I attended a Beethoven concert at the Liszt Academy: Hungarian Radio Symphonic Orchestra played Mass in C, Symphony No. 3. I enjoyed it despite I'm not a fan. The choir was great. They will perform Bartók's Kossuth (Symphonic Poem)/Pelléas and Mélisande excerpt from Act 3/A Hero's Life in March.

    I went to a performance by the pianist Stephen Hough last night. He played works by Debussy, Robert Schumann, Chopin and Beethoven. A fantastic evening. He's a tremendous pianist, able to do the tender (Chopin) and the furious (Beethoven) equally well.

    Sounds like a pretty great mistake, though! ; )

    Concert this afternoon. Netherlands Symphony Orchestra with soloist Lukáš Vondráček (recent winner of the International Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition 2016). Conductor was Mark Wigglesworth.

    The programme was Prokofiev's 3rd piano concerto. Bookended by Glinka's overture from Ruslan and Ludmilla (a very Rossini-style overture) and Stravinsky's Petruschka to finish.

    The concerto was magnificent. Standing ovation for the pianist who came back to play a work by (I assume) Vítězslav Novák and was practically assailed by coughing; as if they were a cough-orchestra hired to play alongside. It was atrocious.

    After the intermission a somewhat beefed-up orchestra played a magnificent Petruschka (1911 version).
