But on Wednesday, March 16, if I had gone to bed early, I would not have heard Anne-Sophie Mutter’s interpretation of Edouard Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole with the French National Orchestra and Seiji Ozawa, conductor, at 1:18 a.m. The whole piece is gorgeous, but this YouTube clip does not have the dancing, laughing rapid melody that I heard that morning.

It’s taken me until now to get the correct title! Another I hope to listen to in full one day….
