Thanks. Mrs. Rock's sister lives in Bremen. We could combine a family visit with the concert.
Do you think Mrs. Rock would like it as much as you?

Nobody listens to Pettersson to like the music . . . .

I don't know. We listened to the 8th together once and she didn't run away. The Seventh is an easier listen. In any case, even when she doesn't enjoy the music, she doesn't complain (much ;D ) She's actually looking forward to the "Gothic" at the Proms next summer...says it will be a far easier two hours to endure than our recent Reingold experience  :D

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

If my wife doesn't like the music (which is basically in all cases of darker music, i.e. few flutes or spring or fun or life or positive melody involved) she starts complaining about everything except music. This way she shows respect to my musical preference ;)

I wish I had "Reingold" experiences ;)

Perhaps one of the most suitable discs to enter into the soundworld of Pettersson, methinks.

Excellent program indeed. Coincidentally I purchased this one last week: it features practically the same works !




I don’t know if the songs are in the Antal Dorati orchestration, though. Something to dig into when I get the disc.
