Missed Opportunity

I was in Portland for a long weekend, seeing an assortment of friends. I made my social arrangements before I did research on possible concerts. I also completely forgot to check the Oregon Symphony, and as a result, I had dinner plans that would have been difficult to change. I also couldn't extend my stay because of my theoretical 4:15 p.m. jujitsu class and, well, work.

So I missed THIS program:
Carlos Kalmar, conductor
Marc-Andre Hamelin, piano 
Dutilleux, Symphony No. 1
Messiaen, Oiseaux ExotiquesLiszt, TotentanzRavel, Bolero
I would have chosen my seat so I could sneak out after the Liszt.

I'll get to see M-AH this week anyway, at the MTT Birthday Bash, but oh man. The things I do for love.
