I'm planning to go to the concert.

I would have gone but for my due to being in the air on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.  Pity as I would have loved to attend. Embarrassed

If you can post your immediate reactions that would be appreciated.

If the Violin Concerto is anything like the piano concertos, especially 'No.2 "the Hindustani"', I expect it will be interesting but not immediately accessible and will require several hearings to appreciate its true merits.  Something which will only be possible in a recording.  It is inevitable that we will get a recording either by someone recording the broadcast or from the other sources I mentioned previously.

Chisholm's never performed Concerto for Orchestra the 'Van Riebeeck' Concerto ( which forms a triptych with the Violin Concerto and 2nd Piano Concerto as works based on Indian music) is soon getting a performance in a two piano version.  I presume that may be available, in due course, from the Chisholm Trust.
