At 5.0, he Phyllis Pearce & I go to concert at T. Comunale of Stagione Orch under V. Gui. V. good & sensitive orchestra Cattozzo's L'orazione starts - loud & dull music. 2 Extracts from Parsival (not too well conducted), Franck's Redensione & Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, which Gui couldn't let run it's natural course - although the last 3 movements weren't at all bad
