I'm trying to find that youtube clip you posted a link to a while back. It was a song about a man who went shopping an always bought more things than he needed..... Can you remember where it was and direct me?

The Ballad of Lidl & Aldi
I was away last week, in your neck of the woods? Heidelberg. A busy timetable and no time to seek you out.

Never mind - next time. Hope you had a good time. If you're here for a concert I would come (whether you or your nephew). Heidelberg is certainly my "neck of the woods".
There is a freebie leaflet called the Heidelberger Stern which advertises musical events in the area, and we're in the catchment area for that, albeit at the other end from Heidelberg.
Thanks for the link. It fits so well into a conversation on Gransnet. I hope you don't mind me posting it there.

Of course not! Spread it around, though it's nothing to do with me.
We were over in Heidelberg in a group of Friends of the Irish Chamber Orchestra, in which our son and our niece play. They were doing a concert as part of the Heidelberg Festival. It was marvellous and very well received.
They will be on next year's programme too, and early booking is advised, as they sold out well in advance this time. The extraordinary clarinettist composer and conductor Jörg Widmann is their musical director. They played Mozart's Piano Concerto 21 with Igor Levit, then a piece by Widmann with Levit playing a humble celeste part in the band.
