I feel like I should have been able to have come up with a better pun. Hmmm.
Oh well. Soldiering on. This week’s BSO concert is “Emanuel Ax,” with Emanuel Ax in the titular role. I’m assuming he’ll be playing the Brahms first piano concerto, because Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra guides past the piano and I haven’t a bloody clue what this “new work” by this “Osvaldo Golijov” is about. Perhaps he’ll chime in and tell us? It’s happened before.
Golijov has a Wikipedia page, anyway — that means you’re big,y’know. It says he’s Argentinean of Russian extraction, so… Piazzolla meets Prokofiev? It’s certainly alliterative. I’m intrigued!
But then I probably had you at Emanuel Ax. Go Thursday, June 2 at 8 pm at Strathmore (free pre-concert lecture!), or at the Meyerhoff on Friday, June 3 at 8 pm, Saturday, June 4 at 8 pm, and Sunday, June 5 at 3 pm.
