Had a week-day visit to LSO St Lukes for a concert today. Given the peculiarities of the trains and fares, I didn't have much time before we had a quick lunch before the concert. The train lines aren't too bad but just wish it didn't have to stop so often!!
The day was good with sun and blue skies so we had a stroll around the small garden at the back of St. Lukes church (now the concert hall). There wasn't a great deal to see and Autumn seemed to have been and gone but, it was great to see, a couple of roses still in bloom.
The concert was Imogen Cooper (piano) and Adrian Brendel (cello) and the music was:
Bach - Keyborad Parita No. 2 in C minor
Beethoven - Nine variations on Mozart's "Ein Madachen oder Weibchen" op 66 and
Schubert - Sonata for Cello (originally Arpeggione and Piano in A minor D821
A pleasant concert - and had balcony seats for the first time!
Mid-winter feeling like spring
