The New Concert Hall

Everyone is thrilled by the new Walt Disney Concert Hall which was dedicated today. The acoustics are said to be some of the best on the planet.

Toyota says that he had never experienced such an acoustical difference between a first and second rehearsal in any of the halls he designed in his native Japan. Salonen could hardly believe his ears. To his amazement, he discovered that there were wrong notes in the printed parts of the Ravel that sit on the players' stands. The orchestra has owned these scores for decades, but in the Chandler no conductor had ever heard the inner details well enough to notice the errors.

I will be getting tickets somewhere around this time next year. Everything is sold out up to that point.
