I’m back from the Tetons and I already miss being there. It never ceases to amaze me just how good an orchestra can play when everyone is happy, healthy, and talented.
There was a fantastic concert where the first half featured music entirely by modern composers (although the modern music purists would be upset to know I include Barber in that grouping) followed up with Dvorak’s 7th Symphony on the second half. The french horn section was truly the “hammer of God”.
I’ll be spending today and tomorrow digging out from underneath the pile of work that was waiting for me and I’ll be back to blogging on Wednesday.
So stay tuned, there’s quite a bit of exciting stuff in the works
Also: I published an article on The Partial Observer today about summer music festivals that includes a great list of links to music festival sites and a good search engine. It’s well worth your time!
