Went to the Proms this week in the fab Albert Hall - with an eclectic bunch including friends from the BBC, David Blunkett, and of course Carole. Berio's Sinfonia was barking - and fun - but that added 5th movement was surely a mistake!. And i sat through the Rossini Stabat Mater thinking what a shock THAT must have been in 1830whatever.
The Proms are a really rather lovely institution, like fish and chips in many ways. Quite British. Rather nice. Makes you thirsty. Luckily we were in a box and had wine.
