SFS: Britten's Double Concerto!:)

Hi Folks,

So symphony season's nearing the end, and I've been eying on special deals on some of SFS concerts lately. Voila, what have I found? Britten's double concerto program  is on Goldstar @ $10 per piece right now. So why not take advantage over this bargain price right? Please read below for details:

Britten composed the concerto for violin and his own instrument, viola, at 18; its youthful vigor will challenge the virtuosity of the SFS’s Concertmaster and Principal Violist. Sibelius was not given to lengthy explanations of his works; after all, he believed “Music begins where the possibilities of language end.”  Nonetheless, he called his First triumphant and heroic Symphony “a confession of the soul.”

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
