I'm just excited and thought I would share with you guys. I will be seeing the Cleveland Orchestra with Alfred Brendel as the pianist. They are performing Beethoven's 3rd piano concerto and Brahms Symphony No. 4. Yay!

Brendel is retiring this year? So is the Guarneri String Quartet. We'll be losing some good artists.

I'm going to hear him in recital in June at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham.

I hope you enjoy the concert - hopefully the first of many!!

When is the concert? [Edit] Looks like it's 1 March and 2 March, 2008.

I hope that you will report back your impressions to us. It's always so interesting to hear peoples' reactions to their very first symphony concert.

Regards,

Oh, Pianoloverrr, enjoy, enjoy. He is one of my favorite pianists, nobody plays Schubert like him. I haven't seen him on stage since a Hollywood Bowl concert about 25 years ago, but the memory still lingers on.
