We recently went into New York City to see a concert at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The all- Beethoven Programme featured the Violin Concerto in D major & his Symphony #3 in E flat major ‘Eroica’. The Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra was conducted by Andrew Manze and the soloist was Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang. In a pre-concert recital Drew Petersen on piano played Schubert’s Fantasy in C Major (“Wandererfantasie”). Before the concert we had an early dinner at Boulud Sud.

The picture above shows The Plaza at Lincoln Center as seen from the outside terrace at the David Geffen Hall. On the right the Metropolitan Opera House and on the left the David H. Koch Theater, home of the New York City Ballet. The green space in between them is Damrosch Park. I’d already taken some pictures of the plaza at ground level, but I prefer the view from the higher elevation of the terrace.

The man himself. Ludwig van Beethoven. The plaque reads: “Beethoven, a tragic mask” by Bourdelle. Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Albert J. Dreitzer.
