Original plan disturbed

Just when I could have found some free time to write something on this blog over the weekend, I was struck down by a bout of fever and diarrhoea. I couldn't go to work last Saturday -- yes, I have to work on Saturdays. So tired. 

Original plan was my brief impressions on the Chailly concert, the forthcoming Furtwangler Bruckner 5th CD on Testament, and if possible, the Keilberth Bruckner recordings.

These all will have to wait for a little longer. Still low-grade fever and headache but improving.

The concert to look forward to

On 15th March, Ricardo Chailly and Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra playing Bruckner 8th at HK Cultural Centre is the event of the year in my calendar so far. Really looking forward to it.

After months of difficult time, the coming of this Bruckner 8th is all the more relieving and important for a rather tired soul.
