I'm trying to eat chips and dip and type at the same time...
actually..the Beethoven concert is tonight, not next week. This is the issue. I really want to go to a live concert, and I miss it, but...
God, I hate driving downtown. I hate parking downtown, and I don't like going by myself. My husband has a dislike for Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. The whole summer is dedicated to a Beethoven series. I suppose if I'm going to miss one, this would be the o.k. one because the violin concerto is next time and then they are doing the 9th symphony...both of which I really want to see. Tonight is a Beethoven piano concerto. The performer is one of my favourite pianists to watch, but I'm not as hyped about the piece. I guess we'll play it by ear. It's that, or Donnie Darko, which came in the mail today.
I may have mentioned that I go through phases of listening to music and then not at all. Today began my listening period again. I put my computer on shuffle and it randomly picks music. Right now Brahms symphony no.4 is on. Before that it was Stockhausen "sirens". Before that, it was commercials. Yup, electronic music, but television-style. They are funny. And Tindersticks and Bjork. Hm..some of these things I don't think to listen to when I'm not in a class, but it is nice when it comes on. Pavarotti followed by Philomel is always fascinating...
Well, I managed to finish off the chips.
Guess I had better go do something productive.
Sals,
JW
