I forgot to post about the last three operas I saw in Munich, oh well.

However, next month I’m seeing Wozzeck in Sydney and Parsifal in Melbourne so that will be fun.

Just bought tickets for Das Rheingold at the Teatro Real here in Madrid (Friday Jan. 25th). Pablo Heras-Casado conducts, and the production (originally from Cologne) is by Robert Carsen.

Wow! Looks very appealing...

Strange they won’t play the Berceuse héroïque in any of the concerts, though.  ;)

It was programmed almost at nauseam during all the 1914-1918  remembrance programs. Recently (last year) I heard in Utrecht the Berceuse as orchestrated by Alphons Diepenbrock. Due to the war Diepenbrock was unable to get the score (Debussy's own version) on time in Amsterdam ( ca 1916). So he wrote his own version. Not that many differences (instrumental) though. Diepenbrock stuck respectfully to the pianoversion...Debussy added another "whisper" of the Belgian "Brabançonne"....

Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor

Smetana – The Moldau from Má Vlast
Dvořák - Symphony No. 9, “From the New World"

This is at 10:30am tomorrow, part of the Nashville Symphony's Coffee and Classics Series. It's also part of the COSMOS - An HD Odyssey which I'm not too thrilled about. This is the third year in a row NSO has featured the COSMOS with added NASA footage to accompany the music, two years ago with Holst's Planets, and last year with Zarathustra. I find this to be a bit of a gimmick and also don't find NASA footage to be appropriate for Zarathustra or Dvorak's 9th.
But I really enjoy the NSO, so I'm all about supporting them And plus my parents wanted to go so it should still be a good time.
Let's just hope their coffee game is strong!


The performance of the Dvorak was great, the NSO is a superb sounding group. The HD Odyssey video was a little distracting, I could've done without it. The visuals were often synced up to the music, which makes me believe that the interpretation had to match the video rather than being their own take on the work. But that's fine, I've heard this piece so many times that just hearing it performed by a good orchestra is a treat.

Maybe next year they'll play Prokofiev's Classical Symphony with NASA footage.

Last month Hélène Grimaud canceled due to a shoulder injury. She was replaced by Eric LeSage, a good trade-off.

Today I received notice that next week’s concert with Leif Ove Andsnes is also canceled. He broke his arm or something. They didn’t even walk on our icy sidewalks   :o.

Looks like my schedule permits I'll be able to use my tickets for this -

Glanert: Brahms-Fantasie, Heliogravure for Orchestra
Brahms: Symphony No2

RSNO
Harish Shankar: Conductor

Glanert is a composer new to me.

"You overestimate my power of attraction," he told her. "No, I don't," she replied sharply, "and neither do you".
