Did I miss the first good concert of the year (in Belgium), or what? Yesterday night the BBC Symphony Orchestra performed work by John Adams (conducted by John Adams) at the PSK/PBA in Brussels. The city where I work. *sigh*

The work performed was

Tromba lontana

Violin Concerto

The Wound Dresser

Guide to Strange Places (Belgian Creation)

I’m intrigued by that ‘Belgian Creation’ bit.

Did anyone attend? Was it any good or just plain bad? Either way, I could hit myself on the head for missing it. Repeatedly.
