Music I'm listening to: Kurt Masur Conducting The San Francisco Symphony

I attended a concert by the San Francisco Symphony last night. Guest conductor Kurt Masur led the orchestra in an all-Mendelssohn program of Symphony No. 4 and the Complete Incidental Music for A Midsummer Night's Dream. Maestro Masur looked a bit frail going to and from the podium, but very much in charge while he was there, getting a very clean, precise, and persuasive performance from the players--hard really to imagine how it could have been better.

I was going to write more, but find myself much distracted by what's going on in Japan, and have to get taxes done by today...
