NEC Spring Concert Series: Loebel + Hungarians

It's time for the next FREE classical music concert for the spring season at the New England Conservatory of Music!

Tonight, David Loebel conducts an all Hungarian program, including the works of Dohnányi, Bartok, and Kodály.  The Bartok will be a piano concerto, yet to be announced.  (Listen to excerpts below; the names in the list link to youtube performances of the works.)

For more information about this concert, go to

Let's meet up at no later than 7:30pm, so the group can grab a bunch of seats together when the doors open, and then socialize before the concert.  We will sit in left-middle section of the balcony, since this affords a good view of the entire orchestra, (particularly good when a pianist is playing), is open to the ceiling, and is easy to describe and find, and it is relatively easy to grab a large block of seats there.

Directions to Jordan Hall:
The hall is located at the corner of Huntington and Gainsborough streets, about a block south of the Symphony T stop on the Green Line. It's also close to the Mass Ave station on the Orange line.  Look for the building with the YMCA sign on top of it as you walk down Huntington Ave--it's near that building. The main entrance is reached from Gainsborough Street.

This evening's program will include:

    Dohnanyi's "Suite in F-sharp Minor" had some lovely passages here and there,and Bartok's "Piano Concerto #2" was tolerable, but the clear high point-and the final piece performed of the night was Zoltan Kodaly's "Galantai tancok". The NEC Philharmonia's horn/brass section is usually dependably problematic, performing at a level below the Philharmonia's strings. But tonight the horns managed to match the string section, in what was possibly their strongest performance that I've ever personally witnessed. Just beautiful.

    What a great event. The piano concerto didn't work for me, though played with perfection (a not very approachable Bartok); the other works reminded a bit of Dvorak or "Peter and the Wolf" displaying a wide variety and favoring the less common solo instruments. Varied and very entertaining. A wonderful evening

    Do people go out afterward, so they can meet one another?

      People do! (I don't usually, as I have an ailing dog that I have to go take care of immediately following.) Such things are often organized during intermission...

      Good to know because that would make the difference in my rsvp-ing yes. Sorry to hear about your dog. Been there, done that. I have 4 of my own (!) who are thankfully healthy - at least, for today. You know how tenuous our little friends can be. God bless 'em.
