I just stumbled into a treasure trove of the reclusive Russian Pianist Mikhail Pletnev on youtube. Here's a tidbit...

Just saw the Feinstein Ensemble at St Martin In The Fields. Such great acoustics there for a flute quintet! They are the best band I'd not heard of previously, but I figured it wasn't much of a risk if they were playing there. Boy, howdy, can they bring it! Their eponymous leader plays a period wooden flute and might be the best flautist I've heard not named Jean-Pierre or James. The first violin is also fantastic and is also first of the London Hayden Quartet AND the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra! The cellist is no slouch either. Anyway, they did the Mozart Flute Quartet in D K285, the Mozart Salzburg Divertimento #1 in D K136, and Hayden's Symph #94 and 104 a la the 1795 arrangements for flute and strings by Hayden's friend JP Salomon. These are incredible arrangements which I've never heard. An incredible evening.



Saturday night: the Mozart Requiem with Peter G Dyson conducting the English Chamber Choir and Belmont Ensemble of London!

Sitting in my cube, this has been a nice discovery. Don't know who this woman is, but she knows Chopin.

I've never heard of her, either. Apparently others have:

"In 1980, her career took a decisive turn when Herbert von Karajan invited her to play with the Berlin Philharmonic. She subsequently received engagements with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic and the Orchestre de Paris under Daniel Barenboim."

^^^ Tough crowd that!

That was a life moment. It would be gauche to say that it was flawless because it was transcendant, especially in such an historic and intimate venue.

You know, Marlow, as a wayfaring stranger is a modern man in a postmodern time.

Does this count?
Don't know, but I like it.

Sitting in my cube making engineering maps for LIDAR point cloud data I've been trying to figure out which version of Vest la giubba is best. Any thoughts?

First my pick as the best:


Holy shite!:

Gary.

Cool posting of "Vesti la giubba" and interesting to study the interpretations. The voice and the actor. In Caruso they both fell together...

Last night at the Hollywood Bowl: John Adams' Harmonium and Mozart's Requiem. Fantastic.

Because I could not stop for Death –
He kindly stopped for me –
The Carriage held but just Ourselves –
And Immortality.

We slowly drove – He knew no haste
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For His Civility –

We passed the School, where Children strove
At Recess – in the Ring –
We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain –
We passed the Setting Sun –

Or rather – He passed us –
The Dews drew quivering and chill –
For only Gossamer, my Gown –
My Tippet – only Tulle –

We paused before a House that seemed
A Swelling of the Ground –
The Roof was scarcely visible –
The Cornice – in the Ground –

Since then – ‘tis Centuries – and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
I first surmised the Horses’ Heads
Were toward Eternity –
