I know it has been a while, but I thought it would be worth sharing what this weekend was all about for me.
Thursday I picked up my brother-in-law at Logan.
Friday we (all 3 of us) went into Boston for a BSO matinee with Anne Sophie-Muter with Andre Previn conducting. There was a world premier (second performance, first was thursday) of a violin/double bass concerto that Previn had written.
Saturday L and brother-in-law went into Boston to MFA, then came back in the afternoon. I stayed home for the piano technician to touch up the tuning on Bea (piano...they all have names) before the evening concert. Which we had about 6:30 with an audience of 8 people; it was a performance of cello and piano pieces by our fav pianist and a cellist friend of his; it is a program they will be doing at ashburnham next week-end, I think... really awesome to be so close to the instruments and performers.
Sunday we went into Boston again for another matinee of the Austrailian string orchestra of various works for small orchestra. Interestingly enough, they all stand (except the cellists and harpsicordist). Made for some interesting dynamics between players as the music moved from one section of the orchestra to the next. Then dinner at Legal, now bedtime!
Hmm, here it is spring, but we had snow for a bit last night.
Getting set this week-end for a massive 'classic concert' weekend with my wife's brother-in-law. I think we will be going to about 6 concerts, not to mention a few museums, etc.
Then, next wednesday, back to vermont for a bit over a week to work on the penthouse.

Here we are trying out LJ for the first time...
been out powerwashing the moss off the roof and doing some of the north deck...
cold today; the water was freezing as I worked today; glad I got most of the
roof done yesterday!
