50 YEARS AGO

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS -

Un­for­tu­nately the best per­for­mance in an oth­er­wise medi­ocre Scot­tish Na­tional Orches­tra con­cert at Ayr Town Hall was al­most ru­ined by a care­less over­sight. Joaquin Achu­carro, the young Span­ish pi­anist, won the 1959 Royal Liver­pool Phil­har­monic.

As is cus­tom­ary on big oc­ca­sions, since the re­stricted stage at Ayr does not per­mit the piano lid to be fully opened, to re­move it com­pletely. This was not done and open­ing a few inches in­ad­e­quate. Con­duc­tor Alan Sut­tie seemed bliss­fully ig­no­rant.
