Fresh (on PSO Outside)

FOLHA FRESCA (Fresh leaf), originally uploaded by jonycunha.

I posted on the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra blog today, “Fresh.”

I wrote about the lovely performance I attended Friday, the PSO performing Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 2 and Haydn’s Violin Concerto No. 2 with soloist Gil Shaham. In classic blogging form, I spent much of the post talking about myself, but it was to make a larger point (honest!).

This weekend’s concerts also included Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, which was so lovely I didn’t know what to write about it. I think I’m storing up a bunch of Mahler thoughts that will come bursting out one of these days.
