    April 11 Susan, Christine and I went to “The Tank” to see Celeste Cahn perform her work: “A lady does not scratch her crotch”, which she also wrote and directed. It was an intensely acted review of women’s historical and present day emotional and societal challenges. The title protests that a lady does not scratch her crotch, but this one did– and since her hand was covered in shaving cream at the time, the result was really messy!

    April 15 Peoples’ Concert at the Town hall. An all-Mozart concert given by the Peabody Chamber Orchestra. It was conducted with confident professionalism by Leon Fleisher in spite of his advancing years. He also played the solo piano in the A Major Concerto with his old sparkle still intact.

Met Breuer and Met Roof

A couple of weeks ago, I went to the Met Museum’s new branch, The Met Breuer, housed in the old Whitney building. And from there, I went over to the Met itself  to see the latest art installation on the roof. I was struck by the distinctly different mindset of the curators in the two entities. The Met is its old self but, in the Breuer, it has created a, perhaps, startling counterpoint to itself.

Here is the roof installation by Cornelia Parker:
