Musical buckets:
  • Attend a concert by each of the Big Five US symphony orchestras
  • Last night of the Proms
  • Musical vacation to Vienna
  • Go to the opera in Italy
  • Yuja Wang private performance seated on piano bench beside her
I'm with you on the Vienna trip! As for Yuja Wang, she would be better seated on my lap while on the piano bench --- I'll press the pedals for her when she winks at me. 馃ゴ

I understand where you鈥檙e coming from but as a married man who respects Yuja as an artist I would restrain myself. Best I could hope for would be during an improvised portion of the concert she lets me pound out a few bass chords while she runs melodic circles around me on the high end. 馃槅
Well, I'm not married, so I don't have to restrain myself at all. :p

Musical bucket list:

1. See a Mahler symphony conducted by a prominent conductor with a top-flight orchestra like the Berliners or the Wiener Philharmoniker.
2. Visit the Arnold Schoenberg Center in Vienna.
3. Visit Finland and see Sibelius' graveside and his home, Ainola.
4. See Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier in a world-renown opera house (with a great cast and conductor sympathetic to Strauss' sound-world).
5. Visit Debussy's and Ravel's homes.
