This was my itinerary for the last eight days of April — a memorable stretch of concert- and operagoing.
April 23: Chaya Czernowin’s Infinite Now at the Opera Vlaanderen in Gent.
April 24: Thomas Adès’s The Exterminating Angel at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. I reviewed the Salzburg première last summer; I found Tom Cairns’s production quite a bit clearer and more involving at the ROH.
April 25: John Adams conducting the BBC Symphony and various other forces in his own Doctor Atomic, at the Barbican. Gerald Finley gave another absolutely staggering performance as Robert Oppenheimer.
April 26: Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Sol Gabetta in recital at Wigmore Hall.
April 27: Kirill Gerstein in recital at the Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg.
April 28: Eliahu Inbal leading the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg and various other forces in Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, at the Elbphilharmonie.
April 29: Roman Trekel and Oliver Pohl in recital at the Boulez Saal, Berlin.
April 30: Daniel Barenboim conducting the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra in the last three symphonies of Mozart, Boulez Saal. Review of the Elbphilharmonie and Boulez Saal here.
