Classical Music - June 2017

Dvorak - Stabat Mater
Holmboe - Concertos 2 (for flute and piano), 4 (for piano trio), 9 (for violin and viola) and 13 (for oboe and viola)
Nielsen - Symphony No.1

Here is the proof that June wasn't just a bad month for pop music. Classical music didn't get much of a hearing either. The 4 Holmboe concertos were all on the first Sunday of the month. The Nielsen managed to make an appearance during the overseas trip, surrounded by musical desert.

And the Stabat Mater was what I listened to while trying to process news of the terrorist attack around London Bridge. Which came so soon after a bombing in Manchester. Music is one of the tools we have to process grief.
