My exciting weekend. [Jan. 22nd, 2007|03:52 am]
hachi
I just spent many many hours getting all of my finances put into Quicken all the way back to about February last year.

Now I just need to stare at some of the graphs and figure out why I can't move ahead financially, and I've finally started doing something I've meant to do for at least 5 years now.

I went and saw a chamber concert at the San Francisco Symphony called "The Moscow Soloists" on Sunday. The concert got better as it went:

Beethoven String Quartet No. 11, Serioso, arr. by Mahler - Can't even remember this.

Tan Dun Concerto for Pipa and Strings - Strange piece, very 'oriental' sounding with the Pipa as lead instrument, orchestra imitates and also provides some vocal accents. I loved hearing it, but probably wouldn't want a recording of it. Looked incredibly difficult to play.

Britten Lachrymae for Viola and Strings - Sounded like a Theme and Variations in reverse.

Schubert String Quartet in D minor, Death and the Maiden, arr. by Mahler - Incredibly good, no more to say.

Then there were also three encore pieces played. The first I can't remember, the second was a straivinsky piece, and the third was a Polka for strings or somesuch. I need to dig out the titles of these pieces because I quite liked them.

Goodnight.
