MSO: Concert 2, 2009

Feb 14, 2009

Concert 2: conductor, Oleg Caetani, and his merry crew get stuck into the coda of Ravel's Daphnis & ChloƩ.

I've been waiting a fair while to see this live. The arrangement was great - it was better than that of a recording of Karajan conducting the Berliner Harmoniker by Deutsche Grammophon that I have.... which is really the only one I know... I don't actually know what I'm talking about.

Lots of chromatic aberration on the whites of the music sheets and the trumpets on the big screen... but I was quite far away. There's a 5950 x 2465 version on Flickr.
