Am listening to this on the WGBH ALL CLASSICAL webstream while catching up on blogs and emails, etc.
Interesting conversation during intermission with Bachmann at substituting for Levine at one day’s notice – for Beethoven’s Ninth! Hamelin is in fact substituting for Leon Fleisher who bowed out due to recurrent inflamation of tendons (oh dear) – and this is Hamelin’s debut! It had to be the Beethoven Five because of the all Beethoven theme of the weekend. Had thought about going up to hear Brewer in last night’s concert but as yet haven’t made that drive from my village here on the Hudson – its about 2 hours or so says Google Maps.
I have fond memories of my summer at Tanglewood and realized the other day that I haven’t been back except twice … actually haven’t seen the new hall either! I guess a visit is due – maybe for the DON CARLO next Saturday.. Hopefully Levine will be ok and conducting it.
