Firsts

1. First homework set (geometry) in 4 months!
2. First time hearing symphony fantastique in concert, performed by concerto budapest. along with totentanz and asylum. boganyi’s glissandi were awesome, but there was one glaring mistake. pardon but I thought concert pianists were supposed to be perfect. also i don’t think we were sitting in the right place to hear the percussive effects of the ades (we were in the second row because the tickets were cheaper there and i don’t like symphony fantastique or ades that much to warrant getting better tickets.)
3. First time having sachertorte flavoured ice cream at a gelateria near my place. yuck. wouldn’t try it again. they also have dark chocolate ice cream called “black jack” that’s pretty good. i shld have guessed considering ami and i had sachertorte at well, hotel sacher in salzburg and we thought it was overrated. i can make a better chocolate cake than that! the chocolate was nice (just a hard shell) but the sponge itself was pretty dry.
4. First time in Bela Bartok National Concert Hall and the acoustics are wonderful. (perhaps not everywhere but that’s only to be expected). it’s also the only place in budapest that has managed to shed its humble backdrop completely. I guess that’s what the director means when he says once you step foot into the palace of the arts you will be transported to a different world.
