I thought a little experiment was in order to see if there is enough interest for a PBS ongoing thread - everything from Sesame Street to Red Green to Nova to Great Performances.
Did anyone catch the "Live at Lincoln Center" opening night with the New York Philharmonic? Besides enjoying Itzhak Perlman, I loved the bang up job Alan Gilbert did with "Pines of Rome" It's as good a performance as I have ever heard - capped off with the very last chord. Huge sound with just the right timing.
Pines of Rome is just one of the most fulfilling pieces of music there is. I always want someone to skate to it, but I think it's just to big a piece of music unless someone did a perfect job.
