Not standard rep, but it's making inroads. I heard it in Cologne a few years ago. The concert was well attended, but the hall was far from full. The work definitely holds up well.

Apparently Nagano is going to record it in Montreal this year.

Standard rep in Chicago maybe! :laugh: Harmonielehre has been on my "must hear live" bucket list for a long while...will likely have to plan a trip to get a chance. St. Louis is doing it again in January which is really tempting, but may be taking another concert trip around that time...

They did it 3 years ago, a "sight and sound" multimedia experience

Going to see Melbourne Opera's new production of Lohengrin with her on Saturday night. The MSO concert was really fantastic and we shared our opinions afterwards; she preferred the Shostakovich for its broader emotional scope and I preferred the Bartók for its orchestration unique treatment of theme and variation form. Ibragimova played an amazing encore and I have no idea what it was.

Looks like one side benefit of buying a download directly from the Berlin Philharmonic is that the purchaser gets a one week free pass to the Digital Concert Hall, which includes both live-streamed concerts and access to prior concerts (1400+ works).  I will be using this.  I also received a 10% voucher for the standard package, but I'm not sure about that, though for $17/month, I could listen to Berlin concerts until I've had my fill.  It's not the real thing, but it's cheap.

One of only 2 concerts I bought for this coming season: in 3 weeks, Yannick Nézet-Séguin will conduct the Orchestre Métropolitain in Bruckner's 5th. Angela Cheng will be the soloist in the Strauss Burleske, a work I do not much care for. I think the symphony will be recorded by the ATMA team. YNS' Bruckner series lacks only the 1st, also to be recorded this year. It has had its ups and downs. Hopefully he'll raise the roof in the 5th !

Have a great time!  Who's Trojahn, though?

Probably Manfred Trojahn, also known as a conductor (CPO Pettersson symphony no 6). I don't know his output as a composer, but it seems quite vast.

Saw Trojahn's opera "Orest" during last season here and was mightily impressed!

But make sure the girlfriend still thinks you're into her and not just into Ibragimova, dude!  ;)

One more week to wait, in the midst of the endless summer break ... but then I'll have a week full, like, full to the brim or even beyond:

Wednesday to Saturday then a change of pace ... missing opening night alas, but if it hadn't been all in the same week I'd have bought tickets for all three Monteverdi operas ... anyway, Festival Météo in Mulhouse it shall be:
http://www.festival-meteo.fr/spip.php?mot1538

Mighty cool programme again (went there for the first time last year) - some names: Peter Brötzmann, Toshinori Kondo, The Necks, Pere Ubu, Hamid Drake, Frederic Rzweksi (in trio with Alvin Curran and Richard Teitelbaum, no less! Curran also does a solo set), Franz Hautzinger, Isabelle Duthoit, Mette Rasmussen, Eve Risser ...

------

call me crazy (really, I do so, too), but Sunday I'll be heading straight from Mulhouse to Lucerne again to close off celebrations with two more concerts (and again, were it not for Météo being in the same week, there'd have been one more concert with Kopatchinskaja):

Yowzah!  ;D

This will be balm for the tired soul ... after that, I'm considering a short visit to Willisau Jazz Festival on Sep 2nd, just for the morning and afternoon concerts, but I may still be too exhausted by then  :)

My next Ravinia date is this Thursday - indoors this time:

The Knights
Susan Graham
, Mezzo-soprano

Purcell:   Fantasia Upon One Note
John Adams:   Common Tones in Simple Time
Canteloube:   Selections from Chants d’Auvergne
John Adams:   Chamber Symphony
Mozart:   Symphony No. 40

The Knights are new to me - apparently a "hip" (not HIP) NY-based chamber orchestra that likes to balance old and new music. Anyway, the programming sure is interesting.
