Musorgsky Prelude Khovanshchina
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto no 1, soloist Stephen Hough
I only listened to these two items. Loved the Musorgsky which I hadn't heard before. But the Rachmaninoff was a bit of a disappointment. Immediately afterwards I played the Krystian Zimerman and Boston SO with Seiji Ozawa recording - which had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Zimerman in full flight was simply magnificent.
At first I was wondering about the microphone placement for the Bournemouth/Hough concert - everything seemed subdued with the piano lacking brilliance. But at the end I felt orchestra and soloist weren't on the same wavelength - or were perhaps a tad underrehearsed. A pity.
I intend to live forever - so far, so good.
