Oh! It’s such a lovely night! Though I can’t get Jeremy Clarkson out of my mind. They just share exactly the same hairstyle!
I have to say that when I checked NCPA’s website, I saw Rattle’s picture and I wondered: I saw this guy somewhere. Oh, it’s the cover of the playlist Sir Simon Rattle Essentials. Then I checked about him, his edition of The Planets and The Nutcracker are just so famous! How stupid I am!
I have to say LSO is wonderful. Last time when Muti came to NCPA, Chicago Symphony Orchestra went alone with a compressed size. That’s a nightmare! This time, LSO together with Rattle is just, it might be a little bit inappropriate, juicy! Oh! The plucking of cellos is soul-touching! And the string section is of tons of power!
It’s so lucky to meet Simon Rattle. And Riccardo Chailly is coming to NCPA this weekend. And Anne-Sophie Mutter will come this winter. I love her edition of Four Seasons with Karajan and Vienna Philharmonic so much. It’s immaculate! It’s like dreams come true!
