Tuesday 21/9 – concert 2 for the week. Not really a concert as it turned out – more a lecture (with cheese and wine thrown in), as the ASO’s 2011 season is introduced by one of the cognoscenti. The orchestra – most of them – were in place and did play a bit, but as this was the third time they’d heard the talk that day they were looking a bit jaded.
A few observation will follow later. Suffice it to say that the Masters series is looking a shade more highbrow than usual.
