$550 million renovation coming to Lincoln Center's David Geffen Hall

it'll mean a reduction of over 500 seats, more expensive tickets, and hopefully better acoustics

I forgot to post it here

I went with Miss Korea to the December 5 show at Lincoln Center https://nyphil.org/concerts-tickets/1920/bronfman-and-beethoven

Piano Concerto No. 4 is a great piece  :)

Shouldn't the title of this thread now be "D&D and Miss Korea Go to the Symphony"?

And that's unlikely to change. Sorry. But that's why I'm suggesting you update the title.

I was at Carnegie Hall the other night. Neither Miss Korea nor DJ could go, so I went with another friend. Call her Miss Upper East Side.

2020 is Beethoven's 250th birthday, and there are celebrations all around the world. Carnegie Hall is no exception, doing two full cycles of Beethoven's symphonies (as well as some sonatas and other pieces).

The first cycle is by Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducting the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique, which plays classical music on period instruments.

I attended the final show of that cycle, Beethoven's Eighth and Ninth.

https://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2020/02/24/Orchestre-Revolutionnaire-et-Romantique-0800PM

This show was broadcast live over the radio on New York classical station WQXR, livestreamed online, and you can listen to the recording at

https://www.wqxr.org/story/listen-beethoven-john-eliot-gardiner-carnegie-hall-orchestre-revolutionnaire-et-romantique/

Our seats were in the very top tier, halfway up, but straight on center, and I had a great time. It was my first time ever in a balcony, so I finally got to actually see a full stage, front to back, seeing not only the conductor and the strings but also the winds and choir in back of the stage. The sound was awesome (maybe because I was close to the ceiling?) of course, Carnegis famous for great acoustics.

If you listen to the discussion by the radio hosts, they discuss how this show differs from a typical show, the differences in period instruments, which are more difficult to play and keep in tune.

In fact, between each movement of the 9th symphony, the orchestra re-tuned between movements, which I can't ever recall seeing before.

Gardiner conducts these symphonies quite quickly.

Gardiner arranges the first and second violins on opposing sides; the cellos and violas are in middle.

For the fourth movement of the Ninth, he had the violins and violas stand for the entire movement.


The show featured soloists Lucy Crowe, Soprano; Jess Dandy, Contralto; Ed Lyon, Tenor; Matthew Rose, Bass; and the Monteverdi Choir.

Gardiner had the soloists stand off to the left side. But during the tenor solo, Lyon walked into the center.



Here is a review of the show that is quite harsh, except on the Ode to Joy https://newyorkclassicalreview.com/2020/02/after-a-shaky-eighth-and-ninth-a-triumphant-choral-coda-closes-gardiners-beethoven-week/
Note below the review is a comment by someone who says the reviewer seems to not understand how different the period instruments are.

Here is a positive review of the entire cycle https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/26/arts/music/beethoven-carnegie-hall.html

This is definitely a different sound than other orchestras, and intentionally so. This is supposedly how audiences at the time would have heard these pieces. The WQXR recording is very nice, listen if you get a chance. If you aren't interested in listening to the full show, just skip to the 1:00:09 mark and listen to the opening of the Ninth, for a minute; you'll already hear how fast Gardiner is conducting and how different this orchestra sounds. If you want to skip to the fourth movement, it's at 1:41:25



When the Ninth ended, the entire crowd was on its feet. Ovations were many, long, and loud.

This was a very memorable night.


***

The next full cycle at Cernegie Hall of the Beethoven symphonies (not on period instruments!) will be The Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Yannick N?zet-S?guin, starting March 13 with the 5th and 6th. I won't be able to make it to any of those shows due to scheduling issues. But the March 13 show will also be streamed live at https://www.wqxr.org/shows/carnegie/about/ and a few days after the livestream, the recording will be available.

Don't get excited. Nuthin happenin, nuthin worh happenin. Just a friend.

You know, the kind who gets drunk and hooks up, and the next morning swears she'll never do it again. That's what happened the first time we met  ;) This time we just had tea and went to the symphony  :)

That was before Tschump said that in a couple of weeks everything will be back to normal, I guess.

NY Philharmonic gives 1st concert with audience in 13 months

Even audience members who had been vaccinated had to wear masks. This is ridiculous.
