Thirty Days of Thankfulness – 11/23/15

2015-11-22 14.56.31

Today I’m thankful for good friends who share good times. One of my friends had an extra ticket to the Tacoma Symphony and offered it to me. We heard the US Premier of a short work by a Spanish composer, Luis Tinoco, entitled Before Spring – a Tribute to the Rite. They also performed Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No 5 in D major, op. 107, “Reformation”. The final movement drew heavily on Martin Luther’s A Mighty Fortress Is our God. The most impressive piece was Jean Sibelieus’ Violin Concerto in D minor, op. 47. The violin soloist was Caroline Goulding, and she was absolutely mesmerizing. Excellent live music performed flawlessly.
