How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I missed the first piece; the second, and most exciting, was the exquisite piece by Revel for left hand. Such intricacies, exciting runs, surprising percussive moments i have never heard before. the Gershwin seemed kind of like a pat piece the orchestra has done a million times - maybe because I've heard it so many times, but it didn't have the excitement it should have. By the end of he last piece I felt a little beat up. I think it should have been the penultimate piece, with Gershwin finishing.
