AUDIO - Concert in Chicago, Oct 21
I listened to the entire radio broadcast (including Bartok's Concert for orchestra that I don't get to listen to very often) of Solti's Centennial Concert that took place in Chicago on Sunday. I listen and enjoyed every minute of it because of the special, festive feeling it gave me. Addio del passato knocked me out. Just because. It's not a review but some feelings shaped in words. The heart doesn't need technical reasons. One hundred percent subjective, but because I couldn't see what was going on on stage my mind flew away, to La Traviata in New York back in 2010 when I first saw and listen live to Angela's Violetta. Amazing performance, unforgettable moments afterwords.
