And we did post them. Once again, and for the umpteenth year, Classical Source was able to be comprehensive with its coverage of the BBC Proms – many thanks to the reviewers and to the editor for their heroic efforts.
But no peace for them, for no sooner has the Last Night of the Proms finished than various new seasons begin; indeed while the Last Night was happening Wigmore Hall was starting its 2017-18 programme – a Robin Tritschler recital (replacing one by Gerald Finley). Tomorrow the Royal Opera unveils its new La bohčme and Thursday sees the first LSO concert with Simon Rattle now that he’s installed as Music Director; concurrently the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and its new conductor, Santtu-Matias Rouvali, get going with Sibelius. Come the Nineteenth, the New York Philharmonic starts up, Music Director designate Jaap van Zweden leading Mahler.
But that’s just the tip of the Classical Source iceberg!
