What a wonderful concert! Perahia was in such great form that some members of the audience gave him a standing ovation at the intermission - something I had never seen. The Schumann piece was so beautiful I almost wept. Our tickets were excellent, also - in the orchestra right in the middle. Thank you Goldstar!
