The concert is free and open to the general public. I am definitely going and am just waiting to hear back from the church regarding handicap accessibility for my wife. Hopefully we both will attend, but she insists I take advantage regardless. The next day, Saturday, Nov. 2, this same concert will be performed at Lincoln Center, NYC.

    Schola Cantorum | Telemann: Day of Judgment
    Last night's concert was excellent. The Trinity Lutheran Church in New Haven was packed, I'd say about 98% capacity with a seat here or there, and Yale Schola Cantorum and Juliard415 were in great form. Watching Masaaki Suzuki conduct was fun. He really gets into the music. His conducting style made me think of a puppeteer as he seemed to play the ensemble with his gestures. The performers all seemed to have a really good time. Acoustics in the church were good; everyone had a good seat. My wife and I were in the front on the left hand side and were greeted by Pat Sundermann of the church upon our arrival (I had contacted her with a handicap accessibility question). We were made to feel right at home. A great night out!

    Péter Eötvös conducted the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra on Thursday in Müpa. I knew concertmaster Attila Falvay from Kodály Quartet and viola section leader András Rudolf from free concerts in AranyTíz. the performance of Speaking drums was very theatrical after zeroPoints. (you can check it on YouTube with hr-Sinfonieorchester/Frankfurt Radio Symphony.) after the intermission they played Liszt's Dante Symphony with the Hungarian National Female Choir after Eötvös' short piece (Per Luciano Berio). I enjoyed the first part more than the second despite my seat upgrade.

I just finished buying a ticket for the concert, train tickets to/from NYC, and made a reservation at Dizzy's Jazz Club in NYC to catch a show and kill a few hours before my train leaves the city in the wee hours.
    This concert took place last night. Prior to the concert, I attended a small 'lecture', perhaps 60 people, where Sir James MacMillan was interviewed.....informative. The concert was excellent: Harry Christophers, The Sixteen, Britten Sinfonia, all in excellent form. It was a very spirited performance.

    Sonically, Alice Tully Hall was an excellent location for the venue. At the interview, MacMillan mentioned the hall's sonic character was not flat (a good thing for vocal music). He said Harry Christophers and members of The Sixteen were talking about it at rehearsal.

    After the performance, I managed to share a few moments with @eljr who was also in attendance. He also enjoyed it. After that, he headed out for sushi while I headed for some jazz at Dizzy's. By the time I got home, it proved to be a very long day.

    After having time to process the concert experience, I'll take back what I said about a "spirited performance". I was front row between the concert leader and conductor, and I was able to see all but 4 strings and 4 singers. Britten Sinfonia's playing could best be described as fierce. The musicians played with incredible intensity. The Sixteen were fabulous. I honestly don't know how it could have been a better performance.

    I need to know everything that was said!

    As Joe enjoyed the lecture I was in the pouring rain fighting NYC traffic!

    After the season's 1st BFO concert (from 3:30PM) in Liszt Academy (PROKOFIEV: WAR AND PEACE – OVERTURE / TCHAIKOVSKY: VIOLIN CONCERTO IN D MAJOR with Renaud Capuçon + Méditation from Thaïs as encore / PROKOFIEV: ROMEO AND JULIET – SUITE, OP. 64A AND 64B EXCERPTS conducted by LAHAV SHANI) I went to Solti Hall and heard Paul O'Dette tuning and practicing before his concert on Saturday. I spent about 10 minutes there. I went out and met David Russell. I asked him for solo guitar CD recommendations, but he had to go. I thought he also wanted to hear the rehearsal. (There was a guitar festival and masterclass in Liszt Academy.)

    I went to Evangelical Church in Buda Castle District. Miklós Árpás came home from Switzerland to play his Mozart arrangements for organ (from 7PM). I liked it a lot!

    Last night I saw a mesmerizing presentation of, The Armed Man, A mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins.

    It was held at St. Malachy's The Actors' Church in midtown Manhattan.

    Directed by Stephen Fraser.

    Truly no words can describe the excellence of the presentation.
