Well... performance was superb! However, be careful of your seat location in orchestral concerts. This was my first time on the main floor and only 5 rows from the stage! You might think it is a perfect spot, but it isn't! For a Play or even an Opera it "might" be, but for an orchestral performance you just get too much of a particular instrument; in my case too much Trombone! They blew right into my face (direction wise) so I could not hear violins at some points. So, just about the seating, if you like to "see" and "hear" make sure you are at least 10-15 rows away from stage and towards the center. My all time favorite section is balcony; they provide good mixture of sounds and a perfect view.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the great Charles Dutoit, makes a return visit to Symphony Hall. Fine French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet brings his special magic, performing with the RPO (“Britain’s National Orchestra”) on Camille Saint-Saëns’ exotic final piano concerto, the “Egyptian” No. 5. The concert opens with Hector Berlioz’s brilliant Le Corsaire Overture and closes with Maestro Dutoit leading the Royal Phil in Piotr Tchaikovsky’s tempestuous Symphony No. 5.
