    I saw Die Paganini Nacht last night in Die Glocke in Bremen, Germany. Here´s a youtube trailer :

    We had first row center seats because I wanted to see how the violinist made those sounds come from a violin

    I was just FLOORED!

    I saw every move of the solist´s fingers and I still can not fathom how a human can posess such skill in playing an instrument.

    I am at a loss for words. Amazing, just AMAZING!!!!!

    The Paganini pieces were unbelieveable, and all the other pieces were just plain beautiful; hauntingly, heavenly beautiful.

    As an encore they played a piece where a flute had a major role; I would love to have that in my collection, but have no idea what it was

    Then the soloist played one of Paganini´s caprices; I don´t know which one, but again, amazing!

    On a side note, my wife bought me a new T shirt for the occasion; "I´ll Be Bach"

    I don´t know why the pictures are upside down or sideways. The originals are not. Strange???

    Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 2
    Rachmaninoff - Symphony No. 2

    New York Philharmonic Orchestra
    Jaap Van Zweden
    Yefim Bronfman

    David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center, New York City
    January 19, 2018

    Wonderful ensemble effort in the Rachmaninoff, drawing an immediate ovation. Beautiful strings, of course, together with eloquent and delicate solos by several section leaders, of whom Anthony McGill on clarinet was outstanding to me -- if his phrasing isn't perfect I cannot imagine what is.

    Having served as the inspiration for so much film music, it's hard not to hear this piece as "filmic" to some extent, but the performance was balanced, not syrupy, with surprising muscularity and dynamism in the second movement, tying this to the through-line of Van Zweden's program this season.

    Bronfman was of course well up to the task of the early -- very classical -- Beethoven piece, which was presented with polish and precision.

    I will say that I didn't see any particular rationale for the pairing of the two pieces on the same program -- not that they clashed in any way, but neither did they amplify or illuminate in any particular way through juxtaposition, the rollicking Rondo of the Beethoven's finale tending to overshadow the lyrical (perhaps proto-Romantic) Adagio of the third movement in one's memory.

    Hello there everyone,

    A charity I volunteer for called CLEFT has organised a fundraising concert this Sunday (27th January) to raise money to improve and support treatment for children born with cleft lip and palate. It will take place at the Art Workers Guild near Russell Square in London. Giles Francis (violin) and Marije Vijselaar (harp) will be performing a selection of pieces as a duet, including;

    Sonata in C by Antonio Vivaldi,
    Fantaisie by Camille Saint Saens,
    Entr’acte by Jacques Ibert
    and Granada by Isaac Albéniz.

    Tickets can be bought in exchange for donation to the charity, and are available here where you will also find more information about the event and what the charity does.

    Doors open at 2pm.
    We would love to see you there!
    Thank you so much.

    Default Last Night @ Symphony Center

    Daniel Harding and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra


    Johannes Brahms
    Symphony no. 4

    Richard Strauss
    Ein Heldenleben

    The Brahms was glorious, I have never been a big fan of Strauss tone poems, Harding and the RCO made a strong case for my ears.
