As engrossing as the Curtis Symphony Orchestra concert was on Tuesday night, I couldn’t help notice a couple who kept napping- one or the other and sometimes together, their heads would sink down- bonk- out cold. They must not have been making any noise because there was no rustle by others around them.
Catch me if you can
Fine program on inaugural night in Verizon Hall where Chistoph Eschenbach was back conducting the Curtis Symphony Orchestra with guest pianist and alum Meng-Chieh Liu. Liu’s technically lush command in Samuel Barber’s opus 38 piano concerto just splashed over the audience, with Curtis’ mighty strings again smashing any wormholes in Verizon. Lui has made a remarkable return to the concert stage after an immobilizing muscle disease with his doctors giving him zero chance of resuming his concert career. His knowledge of his own body, will & therapy proved them wrong.

The Carters were Arthur Murray dancers, the Clintons were pretty rote, but occassionally had romance. The Bushes were horrible, George couldn’t even manage a box step and he would pump Laura’s arm like a chicken wing. Later in his presidency he had dancing torrets and would have spells at state functions to the shock of the world.via CNN.com Live – 11:44pm – Comment
