    ‘After reading the comments on SD about the BPO’.

  • John says:

    “Der alte Sturm, die alte Müh’…”

  • Sebastian says:

    Zubeen there. Dan that. Surely somebody wants my T-shirt?

  • Herrera says:

    “If you think WE are laughing hard at the Berlin Philharmonic, you should’ve seen the players of the Vienna Philharmonic.”

  • T-ARAFANBOY says:

    Well, Vienna is where it’s all at!
    …sorry Berlin 😉

  • Herrera says:

    “Did you see Thielemann last night?”

  • DESR says:

    ‘Anyone called Christian yet and suggested a quick bratwurst?’

  • T-ARAFANBOY says:

    …better caption?
    Hmm?… about: “LOL” !

  • Anonne says:

    Curly, Larry and Moe.

  • Erich says:

    Talk about three Norns weaving the web of orchestral fate…..

  • DESR says:

    Fake, Rattle and LOL!

  • Ivor Morgan says:

    So captions apart – what was Mehta in town for ?

    Last night Barenboim was doing a Schubert recital (one of a series) at the hall.
    Rattle has been rehearsing Rheingold – as per SD photo the other day.

    Maybe Mehta was just shooting the breeze. He looks good for 79

  • DESR says:

    OK, I gave you your caption. Now gimme a prize!

    • Bert Caravan says:

      yours was definitely the best, and you should get the prize; I could only come up with:

      “where the hell is Adam Lambert, we’ll be late on stage…”
