Quote from: bhodges on May 24, 2007, 07:16:53 AMThis Saturday night:New York PhilharmonicLorin Maazel, conductorJulian Rachlin, violinRimsky-Korsakov: Russian Easter Festival Overture Saint-Saëns: Violin Concerto No. 3 Bartók: Concerto for OrchestraThe Bartók is still an alltime favorite, and my hunch is that it may play to Maazel's strengths. I don't recall ever hearing the Saint-Saëns, so that will be interesting. --Bruce

I know roughly what to expect with the Berio and Dillon pieces: anyone have opinions regarding the other people on the program list.

Quote from: O Mensch on June 04, 2007, 06:26:02 AMOooh! Dutoit does a stunning Sheherazade. He just conducted that here in Chicago a few months ago and it was easily the best I have heard live.
Quote from: bhodges on June 04, 2007, 06:31:10 AMYes, I was thinking this is a program right up Dutoit's alley. I have heard Lisa Batiashvili several times in the last year or so, and she's marvelous. I would love to hear her do that Prokofiev.--Bruce
