What a funny life musicians in the Met Orchestra lead. Triumphing in Berg's score of endless permutations and complexities last night, then coming in to play oom-pah this afternoon. Not that they still don't sound great.
Not really listening closely enough for comment, but Ramon Vargas sounds smoother than he did in the Romeo prima a few months ago, which means he sounds pretty dang smooth. RAS sounds fine too, but nothing spectaculah.
I'll check in again before it ends if I happen to start giving a shit.
