Email received today from London's Southbank Centre:

First the St Petersburg Philharmonic "cancelled due to Covid".  Now this.  I have half a mind just to return all my tickets for the rest of the season, and be done with it. >:(
Bummer!  So sorry to hear the bad news.  :(

Oh sorry I missed this, and even sorrier for the cancellation. With the pandemic situation changing seemingly every day, I am hearing similar sad tales elsewhere. Multiple friends who were planning to go to Europe for the holidays have changed their plans. And others who were there already have returned to the U.S., fearing they may not be able to get back in the country without quarantining. It's all so emotionally exhausting.

Anyway, hope they reschedule, and that you can get there at some point.

Concerts from Aspen, starting January 2022

Just got a notice from the Aspen Music Festival and School that they will stream a series of one-hour concerts, starting in January 2022. They aren't live, but were recorded during the pandemic and broadcast now. The series looks to be free, but as usual lately, they probably wouldn't say no to small contributions.

Hervé Niquet will conduct the Montreal Symphony in BerliozL’Enfance du Christ. Soloists include Marie-Claude Lemieux as Mary and Cyrille Dubois as the récitant. This is very tempting.

Well, I bought me a ticket  ;D

Well the concert went ahead with Alina Ibragimova ... and it was OK ... but not what I imagine it would have been with Kavakos. :-\  In fact the piece I most enjoyed was Brett Dean's Notturno inquieto, that was completely new to me.  Intriguing, evocative, and, in its way, quite moving.  Fortunately BBC Radio were live broadcasting the concert so I can download it for further listening. :)

None.

Covid restrictions again that would stop culture the government said. In effect they do. A load of bollocks, alas.
We audiophiles don't really like music, but we sure love the sound it makes

Glad that it went ahead in the end.

Also, looks like the concert will be livestreamed at the link below. (I'll be at another event, but if this is archived, may dip in later.)

Hervé Niquet  John Nelson will conduct the Montreal Symphony in BerliozL’Enfance du Christ. Soloists include Marie-Claude Lemieux as Mary and Cyrille Dubois as the récitant. This is very tempting.

Change of conductor. At least Nelson is a good berliozan. Hopefully no other glitch - like an outright cancellation  ::) before December 22…

Mahler's 8th is pretty high on the list for me of symphonies I want to see live.

I had a similar thought; especially with the rampant shutdowns, who knows when I can get out to see these events.

Luckily, in my area, Osmo Vänskä's farewell concert with the Minnesota Orchestra in June will be Mahler's 8 . Carolyn Sampson is on a long roster of soloists, and I am looking forward to it.

I bought tickets a few months ago; hopefully it goes ahead as scheduled.

COVID permitting, I am planning to be at that concert, too! But it seems like eons away at this point. Have just canceled two New York events over the next few weeks, and likely New Year's Eve will be the next to go. Oh well.

Concert canceled… >:(

So sorry to hear. Events are falling like dominoes right now.  :(

Bummer. :(

No consolation, but it's happening everywhere. :blank:

My next concert is supposed to be in late January - Ullmann's Der Kaiser von Atlantis and Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du temps - but in the current media climate I should estimate the chances of that going ahead as slim-to-nil. ::)

Bummer indeed. This was the only concert in the last 2 years I truly looked forward to. I even wished a recording could have resulted but that’s not going to happen either. Rats… :'(

Another great-looking livestream, free, and archived for all. There really is too much too much music to listen to.

From earlier today, composer Beat Furrer conducting Klangforum Wien at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow:

Klaus Lang: риза (world premiere)
Beat Furrer: Intorno al bianco
Anton Webern: Sechs Stücke (für Kammerorchester) op. 6
Karlheinz Stockhausen: Nr. 1/7 Kreuzspiel
György Ligeti: Kammerkonzert
