Boston Globe: BSO’s epic undertaking. The numbers the article provides are fairly daunting even from the outside. But here’s how those hours break down for me, as of this week:
12 rehearsals for the TFC… of which I had to miss four thanks to work, including two runthrough rehearsals.
5 rehearsals this week… one Monday night, one Tuesday, two today, one more tomorrow, constituting…
17.5 hours of rehearsal. This week.
5 product demos for work, to be done in the few remaining hours at the office.
3:45 in the morning on Friday, when I have to get up after the concert the night before to fly to DC for a meeting.
At this point liking the Moses und Aron is largely irrelevant. Surviving it is rather more to the point.
