|A few days back Simon
Rattle brought but Berlin Philharmonic in Boston and blew my mind. I never was
a huge fun of Simon Rattle and the music was garbage (Mahler 7). We were
sitting accidently very close (Berlin extended the stage consuming the first 8
rows) and where able to see all small interactions between the musicians. God,
I so love what I saw and what I heard. The Berlin Philharmonic was spectacular
and I did not see for a while this aristocratism of playing and behavior. It is
truly that compare to them our BSO is just a bunch of an assembly of angry semi-amateurs.
