A last gasp of liony winter in the winds today in Philly to move the buds into statis even though the sun was bright. Great day to be out and to dip into Verizon Hall for the Philadelphia Orchestra concert conducted by Sir Andrew Davis in a program of Mozart and Elgar. The bobbers were there, heads pointed south 10 minutes in for Elgar’s Sym. no 1, lulled to their expensive weekly nap by its lyricism and roused only by his blasts of orchestral Brit processionals.
