If you didn't see it, there was a stunning proms concert last on BBC4. It was the Berlin Philharmonic with Sir Simon Rattle playing Brahms 4 and Shostakovich 10!!! Bloody superb!! There isn't a section in that Orchestra that isn't absolutely stunning and electrifying!!! It always makes me giggle when i see there principal trumpet player playing. He absolutely throws the embouchure rule book out the window. A serious side embouchure man! I think that this has been my favourite proms concert so far. It will be interesting to hear the Venezualan Youth Orchestra play this week also. For those of you that don't know, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is playing Mahler no.6 tonight!!!!!!! I don't know this symphony well but i am sure it will be worth a watch. Can you watch the BBC Proms in the States? Cheers B.U.M.
