    I found out about a really good small orchestra of professional musicians in Montreal called Pronto Musica. They should advertise better - they've been around for several years and I did not know them. I heard them last night play Haydn's' 85th Symphony. They also dedicated the Barber Adagio for strings to Mariss Jansons.

    saw the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra again in Liszt Academy. Debussy's Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune/Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2 (with Louis Schwizgebel; Schubert's Impromptu Op.142 No.2 in A flat Major as encore)/Elgar's Symphony No. 2. Mischa Damev was the conductor. before the concert I heard Debussy's Violin Sonata, Schumann's Piano Quintet and the first two movements of Mozart's Piano Quartet No. 1 in a free concert in the Old Academy of Music which was Liszt's house, it's only 1 stop with Metro Line M1.

    the three Maiskys will play it with the Hungarian National Philharmonic within a month.

    today I saw the wind orchestra of Felsőtárkány. it was suprisingly good. they were on paar with the brass ensemble of the University of Miskolc. (I saw their christmas concert on Monday. I consumed 4 glasses of mulled wine with gingerbread in the intermission there.) unfortunately I had to leave before the intermission because of the bus schedule, so no mulled wine this time. they played some soundtracks after the intermission (Disney and Morricone).

    on Wednesday I saw Miskolc Symphony Orchestra's annual free christmas concert in Selyemrét church. I attended a year ago as well, this time I managed to take a seat. enjoyed bass László Jekl. I left before the christmas songs.
    Orchestral Suite No.3 in D, BWV 1068
    J. C. Bach: Fugue on BACH
    Der Friede sei mit dir, BWV 158
    CPE Bach: Sinfonia in B-Flat Major, Wq. 182/2
    Ach Gott, wie manches Herzeleid, BWV 58


    I saw BFO's concert a week ago. I heard Symphonie fantastique for the third time in 7 months, but this was the best by far. the conductor was Mark Elder.
    Finzi: The fall of the leaf, Op. 20
    Brahms: Double concerto (Vilde Frang, Truls Mørk)
    Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

    Budapest Festival Orchestra performed Vivaldi's La Sena festeggiante with soloists Emőke Baráth, Sonia Prina & Brindley Sherratt yesterday. Jonathan Cohen conducted and played the harpsichord. one of the best concerts ever despite I'm not into Vivaldi. it was a real pleasure to hear such soloists. (I sat in front of Sherratt.) I shouted "FINALE!" loudly multiple times from the first row during the applause, and they played it once again. did they give an encore on Friday as well?

    https://www.tafelmusik.org/concert-c...re-bach-motets

    This Tafelmusik Choir concert of motets by composer members of the Bach family was superb! Conducted by Ivars Taurins, tone and diction were splendid and the passion of Pietist verses came through well. The motets were separated by single movements from J. S. Bach's solo cello sonatas, played with distinction by Tafelmusik Ochestra's new principal cellist Kieran Campbell. Incidentally the other family composers were from previous generations of Bachs (e.g. Johann Michael) and you could hear what a rich background Johann Sebastian came from!

    A gorgeous evening of music in Baltimore tonight - Baltimore Symphony conducted by Marin Alsop, featuring Sheku Kanneh-Mason. What was especially delightful was seeing the mix of ages in the audience; that has not always been the case in our trips there. It also seems that the city has rallied behind the orchestra following its financial challenges last year.

    Program:

    Florence Price, The Oak
    Camille Saint-Saëns, Cello Concerto No. 1
    Antonin Dvorák, Symphony No. 7

    Liszt Academy's free organ exams yesterday. The reconstructed 1907 Voit organ sounded again about a year ago after years of silence. read about it here. the BA exams started at 6PM, while the MA exams started at 9:30PM.

    my favourite pieces were these:
    Vierne's Carillon de Westminster, Op. 54 No. 6,
    Dupré's Prelude & Fugue in G minor, Op. 7 No. 3,
    Franck's Choral No. 3 in A minor.

    Tamás Vásáry conducted the Hungarian RSO on Monday.

    Hermann und Dorothea overture
    Piano Concerto (with Balázs Fülei)
    (Encores: Myrthen - Widmung, 3 Romanzen - No. 2 in F sharp major)
    ***
    Symphony No. 4 in D minor

    I prefer the last Schumann concert (Symphony No. 2/Cello Concerto/Symphony No. 3). Das Paradies und die Peri will be on the 4th & last Schumann concert in March.
