Other than the wonderfully played
Sinfonia Concertante, this was one of the most boring,dull concerts I've heard and attended. I also went to the Tuesday performance and came away with the same impressions. How do you end a program with the Linz Symphony? What a downer! And the 2 concert pieces for soprano, while beautifully sung, they were flat, boring and repetitive. A joyous "Exsultate jubilate" would have been more appropriate to close the concert.
