The IWSO concert at the weekend went pretty well in the end, – despite the fact that we were unable to perform Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 that we’d prepared (we’re still trying to work out exactly what happened with that one). Chiao-Ying Chang, the pianist instead performed a Liszt piano sonata, which was very well played, even if it wasn’t my favourite piece in the world.

I’m actually slightly relieved that we didn’t do the Concerto, since I wasn’t feeling too well anyway, and the triangle part’s a bit of a pain (I know it sounds daft, but it’s true). I’m blaming Luke for the latest round of illness at work, since he started it…

Work continues on the new theme for this site, but with the IW Cantata Choir concert on Saturday, and rehearsals of one sort or another most evenings this week it’ll be a while before anything much happens.
