After a few morning chores, P. and I went to Sally S.'s newly renovated barn (it now won't fall down) and had morning tea including some tasty delights from the patisserie in Smith Street (going up in the world Smurf Street). It was good to catch up with her friend, Virginia, and Roger. Home for French onion soup (the magic pudding variety) then a nap. In the evening, P. and I went off to the South Melbourne Town Hall to an ANAM concert, this time by Alex Ranieri, pianist and fellow of the Academy. There were three very intriguing works. The first by Olga Neuwirth was for prepared piano with a CD tape, a haunting piece. Then soprano Jessica Aszodi joined Ranieri for a bravura piece by Helmut Lachenmann in part about a lost laundry basket. Through sounds, face slapping and clicks, Jessica performed miracles. Afterwards, she probably sang a Queen of the Night aria for relaxation. The last piece was Alban Berg's Chamber Concerto for piano, violin and 13 winds, conducted by Benjamin Marks, again another magnificent piece. We also ran across Yvonne, retired from the Health Centre, and Anne M. on old friend. Afterwards, we had a good meal at the Salon de Sushi in Clarendon Street, tasty, good value and friendly people.
