The Classical Musician's Choice
Over the weekend I attended another concert of the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra. They really are very good. This week they warmed up with some indifferent new music and finished with a wonderful rendition of Dvorak's "New World" symphony. This bad boy was parked outside.
After the show, a guy in a tux started it up. My student Apiwat recognized him as one of the double-bass players. He made his way through the parking lot in impressive fashion and disappeared into traffic.
It's a Honda, by the way, a "Steed," I think. I don't think they sell them looking like this, not by a long shot.
