I read the link a little more closely - it's going to be available on-demand for a fortnight from October 2nd too.

For those who attended Mittwoch back in 2012 (or watched the streamed performance on the Thursday night), you might be interested to know that Donnerstag is being streamed live from Basel this Saturday. Sadly I'm already going to be otherwise engaged, but here's the link for anyone remotely interested...

Just listened to Stockhausen's Cosmic Pulses. Wow!

You should hear it "live".

Don't really know enough of his work (and for some ridiculous reason I've still never seen Who's Afraid....), but what I do know is incredible. I remember once hearing a tape (late 80s, when I was studying Beckett for the first time) of The Zoo Story. What a remarkable piece that is.

I discover that the UK river people have it back in stock now, so they've now got one less on their shelves than they had ten minutes ago.

It's today!

Annoyingly! I've only gone and landed myself with a bout of flu over the last six days, so I won't be able to make it. Have fun, though.

Ogdon didn't enjoy neo-minimalist sonatas, evidently.

Thanks Selva - I knew the potential was there for something good, just had to be patient (didn't expect that patience to mean cutting it bit fine in the dying days of my tenancy - mind you, a year ago, I wasn't really expecting to move out that quickly!). If circumstances had been right, I'd have preferred to capture it a fortnight or so earlier, when the sun would have been setting directly behind Canary Wharf, but then I wouldn't have caught the stragglers from the Perseid meteors which you can see in the video (and which I definitely didn't expect, and hadn't even noticed in real-time!), so swings and roundabouts and all that...

The view in Reading nothing like as interesting, but I can see some interesting potential for something similar with ominous clouds over the local church spire, so I might have a play at the weekend and see what I can do.
