“Without music, life would be a mistake”

We just got back from seeing the Kronos Quartet play at the Wellington Town Hall.

It was really good.

Among other things, it turns out that row E (where we were) is not the fifth row back from the front; and that rows A, B and C didn’t exist, putting us in the second row. The second row was close enough to notice subtle things like the tapping of toes, stray hairs on bows, and the sound of turning music pages.

Potassium, composed by Michael Gordon would have to be my new favourite song.
