Once again, I've been so busy experiencing all the fantastic performances the Bay Area offers I haven't had time to write about them. So, I guess I'll just enumerate the last month. Renee Fleming and Olga Kern at Zellerbach. Murray Perahia there also. Abdullah Ibrahim and Ekayu at SF Jazz. The Kronos Quartet performing Terry Riley's Sun Rings at Zellerbach - truly celestial. Oh, almost forgot the Takacs Quartet performing Hayden, Handel, and Beethoven. And, the fantastic Pierre Bonnard show at the Palace of the Legion of Honor. Painting has always inspired me musically as much as music itself. Saw the show three times; the last time ran into my dear sax player Rita Thies, who was also knocked out by the show.
