It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

Radu Lupu's interpretations are always different -- this one was and we really liked it. The orchestra showed stamina and finesse during their playing of Tchaikovsky's Manfred. A very enjoyable evening.

Had never seen Lupu. Now I understand why he is so revered in Europe, He plays with such control but with real passion.
