Extraordinarily fine and perceptive review of a magnificent concert at the Royal Festival Hall in London as part of the short European tour of Pappano’s magnificent cohorts – The Orchestra of S.Cecilia of Rome.
This week another great pianist Mitsuko Uchida with Pappano with the Schumann Piano Concerto.
Only in Rome in the magnificent halls designed by Renzo Piano of Shard fame .
Lucky Rome !
Totally agree …..thank goodness we are not alone dear Norma Fisher
But in the end there was no business like show business……Wang on the rampage before the interval and Pappano even upstaging the diva thanks to his Lone Ranger of Rossini William Tell Overture.
But in between some sublime playing from all concerned.
Valse Triste incredible in its flexibility of every instrument listening to the other…..amazingly moving seemingly impossible ensemble ….but then they all have a heart that beats together in syntonia with their knight in shining armour
Tonight in London at the Royal Festival Hall 19.30
