Gail Eichenthal and a group of KUSC listeners are currently on a music and arts tour of London. Gail will be sending reports from their trip along the way. Here’s her message from Day 1:
What better way to begin our jetlagged first evening in London than to float down the Thames with a peerless view and commentary on the old city from a prancing, almost dancing tour guide named Simon.
Then, roast beef dinner at the historic Simpson’s-in-the-Strand. Having landed in the afternoon, our heads hit the chocolate mousse before most of us could devour it.
On Day 2, we look forward to a morning visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum, Indian lunch, and what promises to be a dazzling Schubertiade at Wigmore hall: the final Piano Sonata in B flat, the final String Quartet, No. 15 in G, and songs. With a program like that, we will hardly notice the heavy rain!
