I am a total idiot!
I am a subscriber to the Sydney Symphony Newsletter. As proof I just posted about a recent concert I attended.
And, I missed the announcement for the first ever concert of Anne-Sophie Mutter playing the Beethoven's Violin Concerto conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy!
Not that I was busy doing something else (probably watched "The Straits" on ABC - a very immoral and thrilling TV series on the life of a "fictitious" crime family in the Torres Straits), no I just missed it - I feel so stupid, you have no idea!!!
As a (small...) consolation, Sydney Symphony just sent me a link to this video of her rehearsing at the SOH and a following interview. I thought the least I could do is to share it with you...Enjoy!
PS: My wife just promised me to fly me to Anne-Sophie's next concert, wherever it is on the Planet...
Now you know why we have stayed married for 25 years...
