Meister & Leonskaja end RSO Wien season

A paean to Elisabeth Leonskaja, who played Rach 2 at the RSO Wien’s season closer on Friday. Her conductor was Cornelius Meister, who is making a thing of programming a Martinů symphony every season, and this 4 was as terrific as his 2 last year. Next season comes the Fantaisies symphoniques.

To the people I know in Britain and the States who complain about never seeing Leonskaja: her touring has picked up a lot and she actually doesn’t give so many concerts in Vienna any more, so your chance is as good as mine! Just saying.
