Concert Forecast: Haïmspiel, III

Thank you, Deities of the Handelian universe, for my seats.

(So far, confused season ticket holders and the entire local French art scene. The French are winning out)

PS: Theorbo (Mónica Pustilnik) in the house!

      1. Intermission – The mood is good! Well, the Mahler queens in the next box look like they’re undergoing a root canal, but everyone else seems to enjoy themselves

        Haïm mentioned she brought theorbo, cembalo, and flute.

        Update Sept 19th: I know googled properly – it is Mónica Pustilnik who plays wiht LCd’A. (on a sidenote, it is a pain to google up the musicians if one cannot invest in the program book. still looking to compelte my review)

    1. The scores for Ruiten were brought out just now (and I thought: she has been in a few enviable positions already. Next to Haïm’s cembalo!)


        1. And I was sitting there just the other way around – thinking, how would Piau have done this because I cannot imagine it in comparison.
          Ruiten was good, had to fight a bit of congestion, but the best pieces were the encores. I hope I managed to get a little taste for you two – will DB later.

          1. upload will still take a few hours – thadieu, you’ve got to teach me how to downsize mp4s…
            it’s choppy, of course, and the voice does not transport a well as the pit, but you’ll get an impression (only encores).

    2. Currently, the flute player (who completely charmed the non-Handelian audience) and one of the oboists are talking shop onstage.


        1. Well, she might prefer absinthe, if the goth angle is a statement, but she was really good. And she enjoyed the soprano performance


    1. Oh yes. I wish you could have seen and heard this concert, for a variety of reasons (one of them already present in Brussels earlier this year).
