CMJ Day Five

And Now For Something Completely Different...

After five days of CMJ, I'm up at Avery Fisher for the ultimate palate-cleanser: a performance of Haydn's Creation with the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, soloists Sally Matthews, Ian Bostridge, and Dietrich Henschel, and conductor Sir Colin Davis - who turned 80 last month but doesn't look a day over 60 on the podium. The performance is radiant and glorious: I'll have more to offer once I'm back in front of a computer.
