Watched and listened to ‘The Russian Night at the Proms’, on beeb 1. Mussorgsky's demonic tone poem St John's Night on Bare Mountain, amazing, and Stravinsky’s ‘The Rite of Spring’ not surprisingly caused a riot in France when first performed in 1913, quite heavy going. Listening to Annie Nightingale on Radio 1, bless her she sounds pissed. Eleven night shifts to go arrragh, will I remain sane, physically in tact. I am surviving on Pitch, kids individually wrapped brioche, strawberry and also chocolate flavours, complete with free stickers.
