It was excellent! I went with Michael and Ricky, and we had a box to ourselves. Boxes are definitely the best way to see a concert
The programme was:-
- Vaughan Williams: Symphony 8 in D minor
- Turnage: Mambo, Blues and Tarantella – Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (world première)
- Ligeti: Atmosphères
- Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring
I really enjoyed the whole evening. Michael was impressed with the Stravinsky – it also featured in the Proms this year, played by the New York Philharmonic, but I’m told they didn’t make a very good job of it.
