Mendelssohn and providence

September 1, 2006 at 6:54 AM


Last night I was up late listening to classical music on Internet radio (vpr.net), as I usually do. I was getting really sleepy when a recording of the Mendelssohn concerto came on, and it was so overwhelmingly sweet that I forced myself to stay awake until it ended so that I could find out who was playing. It was Gil Shaham. Today I got an email from the Kennedy Center telling me about their September concerts, and, as if by providence, Gil Shaham will be there playing the Brahms concerto. My good luck held up and I was able to buy a ticket for only $20. I will hear Gil Shaham on Sept. 22 and Joshua Bell on Sept. 24. Wow! What a weekend!
