Jamie Barton at the Proms
Today I listened to the Proms from Royal Albert Hall in London. On an audio stream Jamie Barton sang the Brahms Alto Rhapsody, a personal favorite. Marin Alsop conducted the Orchestra for the Age of Enlightenment. Jamie explained the plot. The text is by Goethe and apparently concerns itself with lonely, disappointed young men such as Brahms himself. It was perfectly gorgeous.
