Found parking in a garage a few blocks away for $8 all day Sunday rate. Arrive in the city 45 minutes early so as not to have to stress over finding parking. Limited on street parking. Spring for a parking lot.

When I came home a beautiful violin concerto was playing on the radio. I would have been happy just staying at home and hearing more. NOTHING Special for me.She was wearing a nice skirt.

Hilary Hahn played splendidly but the Prokofiev concerto is a little insubstantial. I found the encores she did more exciting than the concerto itself.

The orchestra was in excellent form particularly on the opening piece, Minea by Kalevi Aho. This very modern work (2008) showed new capabilies from different sections of the group by giving justice to each.
Hilary Hahn was breathtaking...continued
