Stoller Hall, Chetham School of music orchestra
Introducing world famous alumnus Stephen Hough
The title of the workshop was From practice to performance- an evening illustrating how a concerto performance is fine tuned- Liszt Concerto #1
I got a great seat! I even caught a score- one of half a dozen which were thrown from the stage for interested attendees before the workshop began. It finished at 8:16. The hall is right across from the train station so I managed to catch the 8:26 train back to Hebden Bridge. People getting in the train to the west of the Pennines looked like snowmen but it was only sleeting in Hebden as I walked home from the station. Got home at 9:15, exactly an hour from being in the concert hall. Pretty good!
