Bach, Mozart, Leonard Cohen: a fine week ahead

After a dull period for this grown-up music lover, and not a few disappointing gigs, this looks like a very promising week:

* Marriage Of Figaro at Royal Opera House on Saturday; Barbara Frittoli stars, as the Countess.

* JS Bach is Composer Of The Week on BBC Radio 3 – 2045 from tonight until Friday.

* But the highlight, if only for its extreme rarity value, is Leonard Cohen’s gig at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday. I don’t fancy the venue one little bit, but you’ve got to catch Lenny whenever and wherever you can.

JS Bach… Mozart… Leonard Cohen: three of the biggest hitters of all – a very fine week ahead. Watch Music for Grown-Ups for in-depth reports from row 1!
