Several minutes into the piece the Steinway grand broke and could not be repaired. This fine performer used the baby grand back-up piano and made the audience forget that it was not the piano that he no doubt wanted. Lovely concert.

Charles Dutoit retains the majesty and graceful aplomb that brought the Montreal Symphony to the forefront several decades ago. His conducting is almost ballet. He is tough -yet tender - and the tension he creates between these two approaches...continued

Beautiful evening! Jean Yves Thibaudet was wonderful, and the NSO fabulous. The program that evening was Rossetti, Ravel and Tchaikovsky. It was perfect!

attended National Symphony Orchestra: Hans Graf Conducts/Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Piano, Plays Connesson & Ravel on Apr 29 2010

The Washington Post review (30 Apr. 2010), Style Section by Ann Midgett accurately describes the performance in all respects. It was interesting not scintillating and competently performed.

The concert was good. But my seats were disappointing.
Some of the Orchestra terrace seats face sideways so it is uncomfortable to have to turn your neck for the whole concert.

JEAN-yVES THIBAUDET IS A FANTASTIC PIANIST. TOO BAD WE CHOSE THE THURSDAY CONCERT INSTEAD OF THE FRIDAY (NOT KNOWING THE PROGRAM) AS THE MACMILLAN PIANO CONCERT WAS DREADFUL, CACOPHONY. HOWEVER, THE AFTER CONCERT POSTLUDE OF ORGAN MUSIC ON THE...continued

A fabulous pianist, but the modern music was not our preference. I would have preferred to have a combination of modern and traditional classical. We did, however, enjoy the Brahms played as the encore piece.

attended LA Phil With Jean-Yves Thibaudet on Jan 20 2019

The song choice by the LA Phil was horrible. The 80-minute Turangalia is a song of complete dissonance. I saw more than a few faces in the crowd that looked confused, disappointed, and angry at what they were hearing as, much like myself, were...continued

Great performance by Jean-Yvet Thibaudet!

And the the introduction for the Shostakovich's opera was wonderful!

The concert was thrilling in every respect. Another reviewer has done a super job on the most important aspect of this event: the music. Conlon's introductions were indeed exceptional and added much to our understanding of the narrative behind the...continued

The SF Symphony's "Friday 6.5" concert on 3/13 was thoroughly enjoyable. The format of this series is audience-friendly; the conductor gives an introduction to each piece from the podium. I normally find conductors to be awkward public speakers...continued

It was great to be able to picnic and listen to the NSO all at once! A fun choice of music and enjoyable to watch the lightning bugs glow as the music painted images in your head! We had a great night!

We took our 15 year old nephew to see this performance as he plays base in his school orchestra and jazz band and plays in tri-county and all county performances. We all enjoyed the whole concert. This was our nephew's first time seeing the NSO...continued
