The rain of King Gustavo


Elsewhere Alex Ross reports "The good news is that there seems to be no chance of rain in New York tomorrow, as Make Music NY takes hold of the city". However the forecast above is not so good for this evening's outdoor concert by Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra in Stirling, Scotland. Which is sad but not surprising; because when we lived in that delightful city the locals used to say "If you can see the hills, rain is on its way, and if you can't see the hills, the rain has arrived". I eagerly await tonight's live BBC 4 TV broadcast of the concert from Raploch, my thoughts on this important event appeared here a few months ago in 'Classical music has many saviours'.
