Tally of performances, 2015




The other day, I posted my tally of opera performances for 2015. Having now attended my final concert (on which, more soon), I can now safely post my tally of concert performances, and a joint list. Again, I make no particular claim for what this might show, but I find it not without interest. A composer scores one for appearing in a programme, whether that be a Mahler symphony or a Mahler song. Perhaps that benefits some composers more than others, but I am sure they will cope...


I am delighted to be able to toast this year's principal anniversary composer. as well as one of our hardiest of perennials. It has never not been Beethoven's time; now it is indisputably Boulez's time too. Perhaps more importantly still, I can point to a range of composer's music I have been able to hear over the year. Whatever silliness might be said about concert life dying and so forth, it is just silliness, nothing more.
