  •  My Philadelphia O story (2+ / 0-)

    Is that I provided them with the supertitles for their recent performances of Das klagende Lied.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't attend to see them "live"—as I live six time zones away now. But it was very tempting.

    •  wait, how recent? (0+ / 0-)

      It wasn't the performance a few years back with Vladimir Jurowski, wasn't it?  This was the concert with the Alban Berg Three Pieces for Orchestra, op. 6, on the 1st half.  I was at one of those performances.

        It was the Philadelphia Orchestra's debut performance.

        •  have heard that WRTI may start to carry..... (0+ / 0-)

          ......a few Philadelphia Orchestra broadcasts, per this.  BTW, do you know about Peter Dobrin's artistic man-crush on Jurowski?  He's the conductor that Dobrin wanted as Philly's next music director, having prior run Eschenbach out of town.

          •  I don't really follow the Philadelphia O (0+ / 0-)

            I lived in Boston for many years, and have enough trouble following the rollercoaster that was Ozawa and Levine.

            But Jurowski does seem to be a relatively decent conductor. I haven't heard of him discussed in quite the same level as the Gergievs and Rattles of the conducting world, but I haven't heard people describing him as a hack, either.
