    Haydn - Symphony No. 97

    Mozart - Violin Concerto No. 5 ("Turkish")
    encore: Bach - Gavotte en Rondeau from Violin Partita No. 3

    Mozart - Symphony No. 41 ("Jupiter")
    encore: Mozart - Cassation for Orchestra in G Major
    2nd encore: Mozart - Overture to The Marriage of Figaro

    The VPO really plays as an ensemble, with very smooth balance between sections. I was particularly impressed by Konzertmeister Rainer Honeck's lively work. Great Sunday afternoon.
    I would love to have gone to that one. One if my Twitter friends is a violinist in this orchestra

    Just went to the Concertgebouw orchestra playing Mahler 7 with Jaap van Zweden instead of Daniele Gatti. Would have preferred to hear Gatti's reading of this wonderful piece. In 2011 I heard Boulez and in 2016 Jansons conducting this symphony with this orchestra. To me, this is the greatest Mahler band out there.

    Anyhow, nothing beats a live concert

    Amadigi by Haendel, last night in Compiegne, very cheap (video on walls) production but the (all female) singers were excellent, and the orchesta was very talented.

    On Wednesday I attended Gülsin Onay`s piano recital at Albert Long Hall, Bogazici University. Wonderful concert, terrible audience...
    And at one point, the concert was interrupted by the rehearsal of University`s Jazz Choir next door which was very embarrassing and distracting.

    Programme:

    Bach - Keyboard Partita no. 1
    Mendelssohn - Variations sérieuses
    Chopin - Ballade no. 2

    Saygun - Inci`s Book, op. 10
    Schubert/Liszt - Auf dem Wasser zu singen
    Beethoven - Piano Sonata no. 26 "Les Adieux"

    Encore: Bach/Busoni - Chorale Prelude Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g'mein, BWV 734a

    I can easily place Onay as the 2nd best Turkish pianist after Biret before Sermet. This recital strengthened my general opinion on her. Everything except than Chopin was great (which was a little bit undramatic for my taste) but Bach and Saygun were exceptionally marvellous. She performed with great technique and agility which was not a surprise for me but she produced very sweet mild tones now and then (with the help of the Steiny I assume) which astonished me.

    Last night, my wife and I attended a concert at the Phoenix Symphony.

    Music heard:

    Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 1 (Stephen Hough, pianist)
    Strauss: Ein Heldenleben

    Hough and the orchestra were fantastic on the concerto. After intermission, conductor Tito Munoz explained the background, themes, and instrumentation of the Strauss piece, including some pre-performance snippets by the orchestra to demonstrate what we would hear later. This made the music much more meaningful to us, and the tubas saying "Doctor Dehring" became hilarious every time. The concertmaster played the solo violin parts, and he was amazing on them.

    Hodges, Koh and Kartunnen with a program of Jolas, Saariaho, and concluding with a Lindberg trio which immensely revives my interest in the composer who I followed closely in the mid 90s.

    Went to a wonderful one last weekend
    Oslo Philharmonic
    Soloist Nikolai Lugansky
    Vasily Petrenko

    Tchaikovsky Romeo & Juliet
    Grieg Piano Concerto
    Rachmaninov Symphony no 1

    Encores. Rachmaninov Etudes tableaux ( not sure which one)
    Elgar Chanson de Matin

    Third time have seen Petrenko live, twice with RLPO and one with Oslo. Live or recorded has never let me down

    yesterday I went to a free concert to the Solti Hall of Liszt Academy because I missed Ibert's flute concerto about a year ago in Miskolc. After the interval I did not return as I managed to take a good seat in Grand Hall. (I asked some people before it. both intervals started about the same time.) Danubia Orchestra Óbuda performed Vivaldi's Fours Seasons with soloists Antal Zalai.

    Cosima Soulez-Lariviére, who played Gubaidulina's Offertorium in the first part, came back for an encore (a movement from Bach's Double Concerto BWV 1403).

    Not a concert, but a masterclass. I wasn't performing. I watched.

    Henning Kraggerud, violinist, was conducting a masterclass with three young music students. This was really interesting to watch and listen. Three students each performed one piece. And then for 30 minutes per student Henning talked and played with the student as they worked on certain aspects of their piece.

    All solo Bach
    Violin Sonata no 2 Andante
    Violin Sonata no 3 Largo
    Cello Suite no 1 Prelude

    With each student he would pull apart each piece. He'd play the bass line while the student played the top line. Then switch. He even had the student improvise while he played the bass line. He really tried hard to get the student to move away from just the mechanics of the notes, to feel the music with all their senses. He even had one student move and dance while playing.

    Very interesting to watch.
