Don't Fix It

The spirit of Norvay has alvays been and vill alvays be adventure!

Because you can’t talk about Grieg without talking about Norway, and you can’t talk about Norway without talking about the Maelstrom. Well, maybe you can, but I definitely can’t.

As you might have inferred, this week’s BSO concert is “Grieg’s Piano Concerto.” I quite like Grieg, myself, but I’m not familiar with his piano efforts. Which evidently makes me weird, because Wikipedia claims it’s one of the most popular piano concertos out there. It says lots of other stuff too, the most important being that this piece KILLED SIMON BARERE. Yes. It’s a KILLER PIANO CONCERTO. You better watch it, Orion Weiss.

Everyone knows that entertainment is better when someone might die. But if the possibility of death by Grieg isn’t enough for you, the concert also offers Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales and a concerto for orchestra by Lutoslawski (no word on whether this concerto is also dangerous). See it on Thursday, March 24 (Wine Night!) or Friday, March 25 at 8 pm at the Meyerhoff, or Saturday, March 26 at 8 pm at Strathmore. I hope you live to tell the tale.

P.S. This is just a reminder that you have until this Friday to vote in the Composer Cagematch!
