And Another One . . .

On December 29, 2008, I listed the orchestra concerts Andrew and I had attended between February 2006 and the end of last year. According to my list, we attended twenty-three orchestra concerts during that three-year period.

In the last six months, Andrew and I have attended another five orchestra concerts.


New York Philharmonic
Avery Fisher Hall
New York

Riccardo Muti, Conductor
Thomas Quasthoff, Baritone

Haydn: Symphony No. 89
Haydn: Four Arias From The Operas
Brahms: Serenade No. 1


London Symphony Orchestra
Symphony Hall

Valery Gergiev, Conductor
Alexei Volodin, Pianist

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5 (“Emperor”)
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5


Boston Symphony Orchestra
Symphony Hall

Charles Dutoit, Conductor
Lisa Batiashvili, Violinist

Ravel: “Mother Goose” Suite
Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2
Stravinsky: Petrouchka [Complete Ballet] [1911 Version]


Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
Meyerhoff Symphony Hall

Yan Pascal Tortelier, Conductor
Vadim Repin, Violinist

Brahms: Violin Concerto
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5


The National Philharmonic Of Russia
Symphony Hall

Vladimir Spivakov, Conductor
Denis Matsuev, Pianist

Liadov: The Enchanted Lake
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky: Romeo And Juliet
Prokofiev: Four Excerpts From “Romeo And Juliet”


Next school term, there are seven subscription concerts of the Boston Symphony that hold some appeal for us, but Andrew and I probably will not make it to all seven concerts.

We certainly do not plan to miss next season’s Boston appearances by the Berlin Philharmonic and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
