Repertoire Report- KW 2012

Well, once I broke the seal yesterday and put together my 2013 Repertoire Report, I couldn’t really resist filling in my missing report from last year. So, herewith, my 2012 Repertoire Report.

Interesting points of comparison with 2013:

No Shostakovich in 2012 (compared to Cello Concerto, Chamber Symphony opus 83a, Symphonies 5 and 14 and the 8th String Quartet in 2013)

A lot more Brahms in 2012 than 2013, and (finally) one major work by Bartók.

Some very interesting new pieces and new composer- particularly my first encounters with Robert Saxton, John McCabe and Deborah Pritchard. Conducting my first Tippett was a HUGE awakening, too. A revelation, even.

What did you conduct last year? Send in your list (info@kennethwoods.net ), and we’ll publish it and add it to the archive.
