A Bit Edgy


We're off to the Victoria Concert Hall later this evening to listen to the SSO doing their thing. That thing for tonight includes pieces by Webern, Stravinsky and Ligeti, plus the world premier of A is for Aiyah by a youngish Singaporean composer, Diana Soh. Blimey! The national orchestra is really getting it on tonight, eh?! More anon.


Found out that I've been pronouncing Ligeti's name wrong for years. Fascinating evening. Not a dull moment and I'm completely stoked regarding the semi-pronounceable Mr Ligeti's Mysteries of the Macabre and the wonderful soprano Elise Chauvin. I mean, Blimey! Definitely even more anon, when I've wrapped my head around it all.
