The overture from the Flying Dutchman was intriguing for its familiarity as I've never seen it performed before. James Ehnes' solo was the highlight of the evening and I also enjoyed how well the rest of the symphony reciprocated and added to the piece under MTT's lead. I enjoyed the Berg likely more than I thought I would, but still not a favorite.

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto proves there’s never too much of a good thing. Berg’s riveting suite from his unfinished opera Lulu will have you at the edge of your seat.
