I'm finally feeling better, and it's fitting that the first night I could leave my house in my new @MrTurk suit was to see my friends at the @seattlesymphony. Tonight's opening piece was a beautiful, mystical work from 1944 by Olivier Messiaen, "Trois Petites Liturgies de la Présence Divine". It hit all the Messiaen notes - Catholicism, birds, rainbows, stars - and was orchestrated for strings, piano, celesta, percussion, boys choir and #OndesMartenot. Yes. <---click that hashtag. The Ondes Martinot was an incredible electronic instrument, part prototype synthesizer/part theremin. The color world was so fascinating. The interplay of sounds overplayed on each other was really beautiful. If you are in Seattle you have two more opportunities to see this very cool and rarely performed work *this weekend*. (Saturday night and Sunday afternoon) As a bonus you get Beethoven's 9th Symphony and the "Ode To Joy". These concerts are nearly sold out. So get a ticket and GO!!!
