After a hypnotic walk beside glass objects that glistened in the late afternoon sun, I picked up a piquant Southwestern Turkey wrap sandwich with roasted plum tomatoes and chipolte avocado dressing and a flowery half-bottle of 2001 George Duboeuf Beaujolais-Villages, and relaxed on the conservatory lawn listening to the Waterlily Concert presented by WQXR, the classical station of the New York Times. A musical quartet of two violins, a cello and a bass served up, in the words of WQXR host Annie Bergen, "a Rossini sandwich filled with a generous serving of Hayden" - Rossini's Sonata #3 in C Major, Haydn's Divertimento for 2 Violins, Cello and Bass, and Rossini's Sonata #6 in D Major.
Music, food, wine and art. Truly an enchanting midsummer night!
