 Live from Lincoln Center

Did anyone see the NYP last night.
It appeared that Stanley Drucker was playing a Festival or Prestige.

I thought he used the standard R13 exclusively. The Dvorak 7'th was beautifully played.

I could'nt make out what kind of clarinet either he or Nuncio were playing. Stanley looked in the pink...retire? Bah humbug.

I thought the orchestra seemed to be playing under water...
Dvorak's 7th is not exactly a barn burner, but with a different conductor who knows....

Interesting to see the orchestra trying to synch with Yo-Yo's pacing.

Considering that Nuccio didn't play last night's concert, it would have been quite difficult to see what kind of clarinet he was using [wink] ...GBK

Stanley was playing his usual R-13 Prestige. Pascual was playing a Tosca, with what looked like a Galper register key/vent.

Mark Nuccio doesn't look anything like Pasqual. Mark is about 6' 1" with a light complexion http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://nyphil.org/dbimages/nuccio_mark_CL_0607.jpg&imgrefurl=http://nyphil.org/meet/orchestra/index.cfm%3Fpage%3Dprofile%26personNum%3D68&h=266&w=200&sz=12&hl=en&start=3&tbnid=9N_nn3WDd0ESgM:&tbnh=113&tbnw=85&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dmark%2Bnuccio%26gbv%3D2%26svnum%3D100%26hl%3Den%26newwindow%3D1%26safe%3Doff%26sa%3DG.

Pasqual is short (though not as short as Stanley) and quite dark. http://nyphil.org/meet/orchestra/index.cfm?page=profile&personNum=85.

I liked the concert a lot. Of course there were a few bobbles (even by YYM), but the live interaction more than made up for it. I wouldn't want this as my only recording of the cello concerto, but the personal quality of both the solo and orchestra playing were memorable.

And no wonder the 7th is seldom played. It seemed to be 25% inspiration and 75% routine. I'd much rather have heard the 8th, where the balance is 95%/5%, not to mention the great clarinet duet in the slow movement.

I wonder why Liang Wang wasn't there. It's unusual for a principal to miss the season opener. I have to say that they didn't lose anything with Sherry Sylar. She's a marvelous player.

I enjoyed the concert and agree with Ken about the Dvorak 7. At time the players sounded less than inspired and more into a workmanlike mode.

The NYP woodwinds continue to impress as all of last night's principals shined. Especially impressive were the flutes (and Mindy Kaufman's piccolo in the Carnival Overture).

The French horns (IMO the NY Philharmonic's weakest section) had a mediocre night.

Drucker continues to be the consummate orchestral clarinetist of our generation. For him, it was just another enjoyable walk in the park...GBK

Ken Shaw really knows his clarinets...to discern all that, even the Galper from a video.

I was joking about their similar appearance. I'm quite familiar with the NY Phil web site.

I've heard the 7th on CDs with some pleasure, I think it was just a sluggish performance. Yo-yo carried on even after finishing playing,all that kissing and hugging (not really welcomed by some) and throwing the flowers into the audience...come on Yo-yo, it was just a performance, you didn't find the lost chord!

I only chanced on the program as I had no prior knowledge. I thought the program was great and especially so as this type of programming isn't shown enough. Why the 7th was selected for an all Dvorak program is a mystery to me but the 9th would have been too obvious. So.....he threw flowers to the audience, so what! I do believe he was exhilarated with his and the orchestra's performance and playing under Maazel so he had steam to let off.

YYM was obviously having fun, nothing wrong with that.

If he had thrown his bow instead of the bouquet, that would have been something : )
