We don’t do a lot of sightseeing in KL these days, but we couldn’t turn down an opportunity to go and hear the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and see the lovely concert hall in the Petronas Towers. The school paid for transportation for seven of us to go, and the tickets were a very reasonable 20 ringgit (about 6 Canadian dollars) each. The Bach was beautiful, played on a period replica harpsichord, which had a very gentle tone, and accompanied by a twelve member chamber orchestra. The acoustics were excellent, warm and clear and the whole aesthetic experience was like a cool drink on a hot day.
