Biggest night so far

BBC Homepage promotes the Stockhausen video

On the one hand, it does seem rather odd to be getting excited about a Saturday night Prom concert the likes of which I wouldn’t normally jump at the chance to attend. On the other, however, the Stockhausen Day at today’s Proms was always going to be a bit special for me.

I figured I ought to go to a bit of effort and prepare myself especially for the event (this inevitably contributing to a sense of excitement about the weekend) and in so doing I also managed to overcome a personal fear I’ve had for years.

And if that wasn’t enough, I got to see my own face on the BBC Homepage because of it. I was chuffed, proud, lucky and grateful come 7pm when I finally rolled home. That made yesterday the biggest day of the year so far and tonight seem like the biggest night.
I can’t wait.
The Stockhausen Day is live on BBC Radio 3 later tonight (kicking off at 6pm and later at 10pm for a special performance of Stimmung). Catch it on iPlayer later on tonight for a week.
