The 40th Anniversary Tour is over. We got into Chicago, right on schedule about 5:30 last night. Another hour to collect our luggage, pick up our car and we were headed home. We got really tired driving home. It felt like the 1:00 a.m. or so that it was back in London, and I got so sleepy, I drove through a red light back in Champaign. But our luck held up, there was no traffic and we are recuperating from jet lag today.
The JACK concert at the Wigmore was a big success (in our unbiased opinion.) Also in the unbiased opinion of Jack Clements, The Guardian critic who called JACK's Xenakis piece "an epic tour de force."
