[Bachtrack] This was great; two really excellent Stravinsky works, incredibly well performed.
[One Stop Arts] Confusing in concept. And execution.
Paul Kilbey reviews International Contemporary Ensemble at Kings Place, London.
[Bachtrack] A pleasant if small-scale concert.
[Bachtrack] This was certainly an interesting evening. Absolutely massive mosquito.
[Bachtrack] Rest is Noise gig, nominally. Great playing though. Bronfman phenomenal.
Is this something 25-year-olds do? Because I did this on my journeys both to and from London this Easter weekend, during which I turned 25. I’m not usually particularly talkative, I guess, so I consider this notable.
[Bachtrack] My first experience of the LSO / Gergiev Brahms / Szymanowski pairing. Intriguing.
I’m two days off my 25th birthday. It’s a sobering thought that Lisa Simpson almost got married nearly three years ago, on 1 August 2010. I’ve just watched the classic Simpsons episode “Lisa’s Wedding” on Channel 4 (+1, technically) and have definitely never felt older.
[Bachtrack] This is a stunning work of art, which does not require any staging whatsoever.
[Bachtrack] Think I forgot to link to the first one of these. But this is a new feature on Bachtrack in which I round up some highlights of what our reviewers have been to recently. This is the second one.
[Bachtrack] Not too much to add to this one.
[Bachtrack] Music: impressive. Peter Sellars: not really.
[Bachtrack] Part of the Dancing Around Duchamp season. Nice to have some Cage in 2013.
[DISS] Guest blog for Dartington International Summer School, where I’ve been going as a trog each summer since 2009. Joke about cheese.
[Bachtrack] This was great. They changed it around quite a bit. In a good way.
