I know this is similar to yesterday's picture of Zubin Mehta but like Zubin, Placido was also full of expressions and thought of sharing them with you all.
The concert was as expected, AWESOME and worth every penny (Rupee)! It was at a stadium and a light drizzle started in the evening. Rains at this time of the year are unexpected but the organisers had not left anything to chance. The stage was well made for acoustics as well as rain and the spectators were given disposable raincoats! The drizzle slowed down considerably and stopped after half an hour and it was a unique experience! They played a variety of pieces - most are listed in my earlier picture - and it was a nonstop performance from 830 to 1020. It ended with a standing ovation and spectacular fireworks show. A memorable evening indeed!
