I didn't really feel up to posting a reaction last night, but what a moving night it was.
Agreed with Mr Harp that the Zaldua piece was a real highlight, and for me I thought Andrew Noble's "The Laugh of the Medusa" was bloomin' remarkable (and, sadly, I agree about the performance of the Bach p+f). The sequence of the concert as a whole was really rather wonderful; if only all
concerts could be so imaginatively programmed. Much thanks, as autoharp says, to JSC and everyone else involved - oh, and to JSC for his terrific programme notes (and his few obbligato musical ones too!
Nice to meet Don B, George, PW and Ambootia for the first time, and nice run into Bryn and autoharp again, always a pleasure, chaps. And to Selva and JSC, apologies for not sticking around to say hello afterwards (took nearly 100 minutes to get home as it was!).
