Philharmonic in the Park

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007 | All Things, Music

After last week’s performance was rained out, the crowds turned out in droves for tonight’s second (and last) Philharmonic in the Parks concert in Central Park. 

J had staked out a prime spot for us near the center of the Great Lawn, putting us improbably adjacent to CP and her group, with whom we had to avoid eye contact when it became abundantly clear that they had far more people than blanket space.  (We may have been more inclined to generosity had half of them not insisted on prattling on loudly and distractingly through the entire concert.)

Sir Andrew Davis (who also conducted the Josh Bell concert last December) led the evening of music, which included Musorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” and one of my favorite arias, “Ebben? Ne andrò lontana” from Catalani’s La Wally.
