Mr.R and I were at the Barbican last night for a recital by Itzhak Perlman. With tickets booked as far back as March, the concert was not a disappointment – Perlman is one of the world’s greatest living violinists and it was a treat to watch him in action. The audience enjoyed the encore which was full of Perlman’s trademark puns and witty asides. The music was lovely and the pianist, Bruno Canino, was remarkable too.
I’m no classical music expert, so I’ll leave the reviewing to someone else. Suffice to say that it was a very nice evening. It was a bit cold on the outside of the building, but a short chakkar in the Barbican library, then an early dinner at the Balcony Bistro on the first floor prepped us up for the rest of the evening.
