Took BART. Davies Hall not far. Although it was a cool evening, it seemed a little toasty in the concert hall. Plush velvet seats hold heat. Dress in layers.

Great performance. Two hour long concert with no intermission is tough to sit still through. On my recording I only listen to the first movement. After the pre-concert lecture I had greater appreciation for the following movements.

Big, theatrical, wonderful. I found myself loving MTT and the SF Symphony as much as I love Timmy and the Giants. And sitting on the end seat of the first tier was fine. I got to stretch my legs and bounce around.
