NY Phil follow-up

So reading the Times review of Tuesday night's Philharmonic concert, attended by some 50,000, tipped me off to a few things I missed: The woman who announced the slight shortening of the program was none other than the conductor herself, Marin Alsop. And she did actually get the third and fourth movements of Beethoven's Fifth in there under the wire. I guess I'd just been expecting to hear the second movement, and therefore assumed it was the fourth when it didn't match.
