How was your experience?
Once I eliminate the awful seating I was given and the storm trooper like usher in my section, the rest of the evening was wonderful. Jeremy Denk was a wizard on the piano, watching his fingering from my position almost made up for the terrible seat I was in. MTT, as usual, put together a night of music that transformed. While he doesn't shoot for seamless segues, he managed once again to make very varied pieces blend into a playbook that made perfect sense. I always try to go when MTT is conducting, despite the worst seats in the house they give to Goldstar attendees.
