Just listened again to the Sibelius 7 (and watched) via iPlayer... using the nice big iMac with its good speakers. MUCH more impressive than live in the hall. The mics picked up a weight in the playing that the Albert Hall swallowed up, perhaps. But then it should have been played for the hall, I would have thought, rather than the microphones...

Intriguing interviews with 3 punters on the rail in the arena after that, though: any Message Boarders among the trio???
