  1. I saw the Berio, thanks to your note. Great performances. Also, an ideal venue and setup for a date where one person has more enthusiasm for that sort of thing than the other person. It is a rare opportunity to watch gifted performers from a distance of twenty feet or less, and if you hate the music, you can look at the space, or leave the room. As it turned out, the only piece we disagreed about was the trumpet.
