I was very pleased to head off to see last weekend’s show at the Jack Singer. The Philharmonic put on Mozart’s Requiem — the headliner piece for the night — but the real gem of the night was listening to the choral performance of In Flanders Fields. It was followed by Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4, which was both dreamy and sombre, and a perfect accompaniment to Chatman’s choral piece.
There’s something to be said for live music — for going and immersing yourself in the experience. Hearing a piece played live…it’s special. It is a sensory privilege.
