Myself conducting the Orchestre de Paris



All-Czech Night!

Where do I buy tickets to these concerts Huh Huh I shall most certainly be attending. (Not the Don Gillis one though Grin Grin)

I love the idea that the audiences will be so swept away by the power and passion of Kyle's performances with his fine orchestras that they will all demand encores Smiley Smiley

Oh, gee...what a lovely thread - & I'll be scrutinising the submissions for things I've missed out on; not quite so many nowadays.

As one or two of you may know - I've a preference for choral music, so, with the possibility of scheduling an all-choral programme...and a promise I won't be conducting:
Jon Leifs Requiem, Christopher Rouse Requiem, Frank Martin Requiem - hope you don't miss the last train !

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948

Hopefully at the ASO's website or at Avery Fisher Hall (as soon as I get Maestro Botstein to at least consider them, if I can). Smiley
