Martha Argerich

I'm a bit grumpy at the moment, I have a nasty throat infection (which EVERYONE in my personal universe knows about and is completely bored by ) and it's meant that I have missed three concerts !! That's fine, these things happen but I am very sad about missing one particular concert. I had tickets to see Martha Argerich at the Royal Festival Hall. On two previous occasions she has cancelled last minute and on the one evening she does show up I have to cancel ! Well, a friend who did go informed me that it was astonishing, the best live performance she's ever seen ( this friend is over seventy, and seen many concerts so I think that's a great compliment ! ). So this is kind of a dream review, I suppose, of a dream concert : ) lots of love tt
