St David's Hall 2010 / 2011 Part 2

Photo sort of came from here

The International Concert Series begins on the 7th of October with a visit from the LPO and pianist Jean-Hawt Boy Bavouzet, but pressed for space I've jumped ahead to next year for my picks of the series. A note on my slightly peculiar programme layouts – as much as I am in awe from the tips of my toes to the roots of my hair at the musicianship skillz on display I think that sometimes it's nice to big up the composers responsible for the notes on the pages.
