BandOrkestra at Piazza Verdi, Trieste (video)
It’s a lovely venue for concerts, just 100 meters from the port in a magnificent square. Several thousand were there, and hundreds more eating gelato in the nearby cafes. The band was a way too loud in the beginning. There’s a lot of brass and those first songs were heavy on them. I tire of being hit over the head with noise. The band’s leader paces constantly, which remained forever a distraction, but the musicians he assembled and leads are excellent. Here’s a video of one of the numbers.
