Short Weeks in Shostakovich

Last week rather trailed off due to commitments of the “work / miscellaneous” kind, and this week threatens to do the same as I head to San Francisco for a long weekend.  Nonetheless!  I will pick up again later today with Shostakovich’s unfinished operetta, The Big Lightning, and proceed from there through a couple more works for stage and screen.  Too, I’m excited to hear the San Francisco Symphony in concert for the first time this Thursday afternoon, as Pablo Heras-Casado conducts, among other works, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 12.  I’m very much looking forward to hearing that work in all its orchestral gigantitude live on stage for the first time, and even more to finally hearing the ensemble.  Good times ahead.
