Concertgoing gone awry
January 13, 2012 Leave a comment
Last night, courtesy of my roommate, a violinist with the Berlin Philharmonic, I watched Daniel Barenboim lead the great orchestra (plus choir and soloists) in a rendition of Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius. It was a fantastic concert, and I felt lucky to experience it (free of charge, no less).
I felt even luckier this morning, when I read about just how badly a trip to the Philharmonic can go.
