All cultured up I was today.
I was invited to 'Adult Themes' at the city Recital Hall in Angel
Place this evening. Now here was me thinking that it'd turn out
to be all smutty (rude!), however I couldn't
have been more wrong.
I got to listen to Danse de l'extase (Brophy), the overture from
Dongiovanni (Mozart) and Elgar's Symphony no.1 in A flat. Not only
that, but Richar Gill, the conductor then went on to describe each
piece, how it worked and what the composer was up to when he wrote
it. All in all a very educational and cultured evening.
But I do think that the orchestra could have played naked without
distracting too much from the music...
