    Guess I posted it in the wrong spot. Here is my post on the Alcina performance.

    Had a "double whammy" last weekend.

    Saturday evening went to see local orchestra "Sinfonia of Leeds".

    They performed

    Stravinsky
    Symphonies of Wind Instruments

    Part
    Tabula Rasa

    Brahms
    Symphony No 4

    Soloists
    David Greed and Andrew Long

    Conductor
    Anthony Kraus

    Lovely concert that was something a bit different and one of the best interpretations I have heard of the Brahms. They performed it just how I like it with the right tempo and texture.


    Sunday afternoon saw "Leeds Haydn Players"

    Performing

    Rossini
    Overture to Il Signor Bruschino

    Haydn
    Symphony no 44 in E Minor

    Rossini
    Introduction, theme and variations for clarinet and orchestra

    Schubert
    Symphony no 3 in D Major

    Soloist
    Benjamin Palmer

    Conductor
    Christopher Pelly

    The Rossini Overture was unusual as the orchestra stamped their feet, but I do have a recording where it sounds like maracas. In saying that, when watching on U Tube, they tapped their instruments so I am wondering what did Rossini intend!!

    yesterday a string quartet gave a free concert in Müpa (Beethoven's SQ op. 18, No. 4, Mozart's SQ K. 387 & Divertimento K. 251), after it I went to Liszt Academy. there was an oboe diploma concert in Solti Hall with Silvestrini's 6 Concert Etudes for Oboe and Bach's oboe concerto BWV 1056 before interval. I went to Grand Hall to see a piano diploma concert which began 30 minutes after the other concert, I missed only the first two Chopin ballads of the four. in the 2nd part they perfomed Ravel's Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano and Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1 with Solti Chamber Orchestra. I went for the piano concerto and they did not disappoint.

    A few weeks ago I saw the Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin at Carnegie Hall.

    This year I have also seen the NYPO, the Vienna Philharmonic, and the Budapest Festival Orchestra.

    I enjoyed the Philadelphia Orchestra more than any of them.

    I need to see them again but it is possible I have found my favorite orchestra. Fantastic strings and great ensemble balance.

    This review from Bachtrack does a great job of describing the concert: https://bachtrack.com/review-muhly-m...cki-march-2019

    Nico Muhly - Liar (Suite from Marnie)
    Mendelssohn - Piano Concerto No. 1
    Schubert - Symphony No. 9 ("Great")

    I just bought tickets to see Daniil Trifinov perform Beethoven's 5th Piano Concerto. This should be fun!

    I'm deciding whether to go see Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio this Saturday. Has anybody here seen them in concert? They're playing Schumann, Ravel, and Mendelssohn. http://www.syracusefriendsofchambermusic.org/

    after Respigi's Vetrate di Chiesa, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet performed Ravel's concerto in Liszt Academy with Hungarian RSO. (check him on youtube!) he gave 2 encores. Verdi's Quattro pezzi sacri closed the evening. Sesto Quatrin was the conductor.

    Last night, members of the Royal Northern Sinfonia, performed

    Syrinx - Debussy
    Six Metamorphoses After Ovid: 1. Pan - Britten
    Six Bagatelles for Wind Quintet - Ligeti
    Wind Serenade in E Flat Major - Strauss
    Serenade No. 10 'Gran Partita' - Mozart

    I didn't think I knew any of these, though it turned out I recognised the Debussy. Also, I misread the programme, and couldn't hear where one Metamorphosis morphed into another, nor where the Britten ended and the Ligeti began. Now I see that there was only one metamorphosis...

    14 wind instruments in a small church made quite a noise!

    Sneaked in for Danish Chamber Orchestra's concert on Sunday in Liszt Academy. I saw 2 harp and 1 cimbalom diploma concerts before that in Solti Hall. I took a seat in the 8th row of the Grand Hall in the after interval and at least 1 seat was also free there. They played Beethoven's 4th with Figaro overture as an encore. it was only incing on the cake as I also enjoyed Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp & Timofeev's Concerto for Cimbalom and Orchestra as well. (Timofeev's concerto is on YouTube, you can check it out.)

    tonight I went for Zsolt Serei Composer’s Evening, but after the first piece of the 2nd part of the concert I left for the Grand Hall. I managed to take a seat in the 4th row. the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra performed Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms and Sibelius' 7th. Budapest FO also performed the first one in Müpa in February, but this time the choir was much louder. (Béla Bartók National Concert Hall in Müpa is much bigger than the Grand Hall of Liszt Academy.) András Rudolf played the viola who regularly performs free in AranyTíz as a member of Magyar Vonóstrió. Hannu Lintu was a very theatrial conductor.

    On Tuesday I saw the aria exam here with young performers and the Pannon Philharmonic Orchestra.
