Music is another great antidote. This evening we went to the Beaux Arts to hear the orchestra in residence (the Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest from Bruges) playing Messiaen’s Les offrandes oubliées, Dutilleux’s Tout un monde lointain (a cello concerto) and César Franck’s Symphony in D, all under the workmanlike baton of Ludovic Morlot. The soloist was 71 year-old American, Lynn Harrell. Chatting with a colleague afterwards we were agreed that if it had not been for his avuncular theatrics (humming to himself, grinning at the first violin) we would not have found the Dutilleux of particular interest. But the evening was capped by Franck’s last great symphonic work
