Having read the about the ETH Orchestra (Akademisches Orchester Zürich) Concert, featuring Beethoven’s 2nd Piano Concerto and Shostakovich’s 15th Symphony, we wandered over to the Tonhalle last evening for the concert. Upon arrival it was clear that there were tickets involved, even though the flyer did not mention cost. (It didn’t say it was free, either.) I asked the person in line in front of us how much the tickets were, and she said one section was 40 CHF and the other 30 CHF. I was not too excited about paying $44 or $33 to hear that particular Shostakovich (Beethoven, maybe), and I was also not sure how fabulous the AOZ is, so we sauntered back out and decided to take a post-thunderstorm walk through parts of Zürich that we hadn’t seen yet.
We got a little lost at one point, but managed to find our way home anyway. Here are some pictures of things we saw along the way. So, yeah, always a little Abenteuer (adventure) with us.
