    Good to see them playing a low opus number, people need to know Haydn was good from the get go! Too many bad critics, since Victorian times, have poo-pooed his early string quartets. I was also amazed by the slow movement when I heard the Kodaly quartet play Op.1 No.1 (Naxos CD.)

    four concerts last week:
    László Fassang's organ concert in Zugló Evangelical Church (with Bach's Prelude & Fugue in E Minor, impressive organ)
    concert at Liszt Academy with 3 string quartets (Dvořák's String Quartet No. 12, Grieg's String Quartet No. 1, Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 8)
    Magyar Vonóstrió in Aranytíz (featuring a guest bassoonist)
    Budapest Festival Orchestra's last concert of the season (Mahler's Sympnony No. 2 with Christiane Karg, Elisabeth Kulman & Czech Philharmonic Choir of Brno)

    yesterday's Pelléas et Mélisande in Miskolc (they shocked me as they performed excerpts only)
    the first three concerts were free.

    Last Saturday at Leeds Town Hall

    Dresden Philharmonic
    Michael Sanderling
    Soloist Jennifer Pike

    Performing
    Weber Overture Euryanthe
    Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
    Beethoven Symphony no 5

    Wasn't the best concert I had been to.
    The overture wasn't too bad and the violin concerto was performed well even though she wasn't Joshua, but when it came to Beethoven, noticed in the first movement that some of the notes were stopped abruptly and in the quieter parts of the symphony, was so quiet that it couldn't be heard.

    Be interested to know if anyone else has come across this orchestra and conductor

    Last night I went to see Peter Grimes by Benjamin Britten. Our local professional orchestra performed it, the opera was not staged, no costumes or acting, just singing and playing. Instead the soloists sang standing in front of the orchestra and the orchestra choir / chorus sat behind the orchestra and sang. The performance was fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    It was fantastic to watch the orchestra perform an opera. And because the orchestra was on stage, they had a huge compliment of players. The sound quality of the orchestra was great because they were on stage with the singers. It was so thrilling to see this. I'm not a big opera fan, I don't go to many operas. But Peter Grimes is terrific, and I love the Four Sea Interludes.

    It was long, a few seconds less than three hours including the intermission. The audience was sparse, it wasn't well attended, which is a shame. It's a lot cheaper to put on an opera like this - no staging or acting. The soloists read from the score. So there is less preparation time for them. This could be a way for us to see some operas that are never staged here on the west coast, such as Wagner, or some 20th Century operas.

    This was Bramwell Tovey's penultimate concert, it'll be sad to see him go, as he's been here 18 years. Next week is Mahler 2, which I will also attend.

    Two thumbs up, this was a concert I'll remember for a long time. I can't get over how good the orchestra and singers sounded. I've seen operas before but the orchestra is stuck down in the pit, the sound is fine, but last night was outstanding.

    I conducted in a concert last night- a local summer band and orchestra program that went very well. I did a piece with both band and orchestra. For band, Maslanka's Mother Earth Fanfare. For orchestra, Sibelius's Finlandia. The latter was a dream come true; I have loved that piece since I was a little kid. I think I like this conducting thing.

    I saw Danubia Orchestra Óbuda 3 times in 2 weeks. I became a fan of Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings and Grieg's Holberg suite in the first concert, I've heard those pieces at least three times since. The second concert's program was familiar to me (Chopin's piano concerto in E minor/Bartók's Hungarian sketches/Kodály's Háry János suite). The last one was the most difficult as it was a John Williams concert, lasted only an hour. all concerts were free.

    There will be a free concert in December in Liszt Academy with Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, it's a must for me!

    Ribble Valley International Piano Week 2018
    (Organised by Blackburn International Musical Festival)
    Westholme School, Blackburn, Lancashire, UK

    Friday 20th July, 7.30pm – Pavel Kolesnikov, piano

    Helmut Lachenmann - Schattentanz (Shadow Dance) from ‘Ein Kinderspiel’

    Debussy - Dr. Gradus ad Parnassum; Jimbo’s Lullaby - from ‘Children’s Corner Suite, L113

    Lachenmann - Akiko from ‘Ein Kinderspiel’

    Debussy - Serenade for the Doll from ‘Children’s Corner Suite’

    Chopin
    Mazurka in C# min, Op. 30, No. 4
    Étude in F min, Op. 25, No. 2

    Debussy - The Snow is Dancing from ‘Children’s Corner Suite’

    Liszt - La Campanella

    Lachenmann - Schattentanz (Shadow Dance) from ‘Ein Kinderspiel’ (i.e. ,this was repeated)

    Debussy - The Little Shepherd from ‘Children’s Corner Suite’

    J.S. Bach - Prelude in C# from Book II of the “Well Tempered Clavier”

    Debussy - Golliwog’s Cakewalk from ‘Children’s Corner Suite’

    Lachenmann - Filter-Schaukel (Filter-Swing) from ‘Ein Kinderspiel’

    Debussy - Feux d’artifice, No. 12 from Préludes Book 2

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Couperin - Tombeau de M. Blancrocher from ‘Bauyn Manuscript’

    Robert Schumann - Fantasie in C, Op. 17


    The first half of Pavel Kolesnikov's programme worked particularly well. The RVIPW is just starting to feature music dating from the 20th century - even Debussy is quite adventurous in this context - but I have seen nothing as daring as Lachenmann being programmed here before in more than a decade of attending. A really interesting recital, and played with real 'fire'. It was fairly well attended too, the age profile being markedly lower than usual for the RVIPW.

    Going tonight at Kirk in the Hills.

    Detroit Symphony Orchestra
    Michelle Merrill, conductor
    Sarah Shafer, soprano

    BRITTEN Simple Symphony for String Orchestra
    BRITTEN Les Illuminations
    MOZART "L'amerò, sarò costante" from Il Rè Pastore
    MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 1


    EDIT: Concert was great! Mendelssohn was wonderful. The other works don't do much for me. The soprano did not impress me. Voice seemed to have a lot of vibrato, which I did not care for.
