Where is everybody?

Post by Lance » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:26 pm

Are people still going to concerts and buying music? I sure hope so or else we will, perhaps, be buying downloads, something I DON'T want to do. Let's hear from you on CMG!

I'm still fighting Liszt and not much else. :mrgreen:

I'm going to a recital by Daniil Trifanov on March 24 and, hopefully, will post my impressions in the "Review" forum.

Hi Lance --

Opportunities for live classical music in the middle of North Dakota are exceedingly rare. I just returned from L.A. where I heard the Philharmonic with Helene Grimaud in the Brahms 1st Concerto and then the following night the Venice Baroque in a program of Vivaldi, Geminiani, Galuppi and Avison.

I have tickets for two performances of Walkure at Chicago's Lyric in September and then return to the Windy City the next month for the three Monteverdi operas with John Eliot Gardiner & company. Aside from that, there probably will not be much live music in my life.

As far as recordings, I have a few downloads, all but one freebies. I really don't like them, but may get used to the new technology. Purchases of CDs have slowed greatly, thanks to less disposable income but more especially because I increasingly turn to the thousands of CD already on my shelves and enjoy them all over again. I like having YouTube (although the audio quality can be dicey), and of course CMG remains a daily visit. Finally, the weekly radio show keeps me active.

I have a few local chamber music things coming up. I've been neglecting the excellent local series. I will probably wait until I've seen a few over the next few weeks and report on them all together.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
