I wonder if I'll get back in the habit of blogging more often, I just don't know.
Had a very nice Valentine's Day, not a date, but a lovely concert! Haydn's Creation
. I've heard it once before (in a concert hall, I mean). It's just an incredible work. As I particularly like the sound of double reeds, I'm charmed by the bassoons, contrabassoon, oboe, and English horn...or was that two oboes?
In fact, the only thing I didn't like was that in the movement where the birds are created, I couldn't hear the bassoons as the doves. The clarinet (lark) and flute (nightingale) were clearly audible. And I could see
the bassons playing, but heard nothing.
However, there was a very handsome trumpeter, which made for some nice visuals!
Is to give you an idea of the seats we had.
I went with Hardy, my roommate, who has a very difficult time sitting still for that long, but who does enjoy the experience. I think when I buy my tickets for the coming season I'll put a note on Facebook and let people pick concerts...we'll see.
After that, we went to Veniero's
until about midnight.
Yesterday was a lazy day. I went to church, again impressed by Fr. Tony's preaching. Had lunch. Then Hardy and I went shopping for those staple kind of things and some things so that it's easy to just heat something for dinner.
While I love winter, I'm really looking forward to spring this year!
