does anyone go see any? which ones?
I'm a music student so I go to quite a few classical music concerts, but I tend to prefer chamber music to orchestral stuff so I don't really have a favourite orchestra. Also the problem with trying to work out which orchestra is best is that the conductor can have a big effect, and "name" conductors often do lots of concerts with orchestras other than the one they're nominally attached to.
and orchestras performing with bands such as Bjork, Tindersticks and Joanna Newsom. But that's it.
and Royal philharmonic. Unless youre a keener you should make sure you that the music being played is good, rather than the renown of the orchestra. Ie dont go and see a composers work you dont like just because of the orchestra.
how everyone has an opinion on something they have never experienced or have no intention of experiencing
iv'e not been lying....
which leads to the question(s) i was leading up to
are orchestras just classical karaoke?
does that mean they're shit and irrelevant then?
if not, why are they judged differently?
