If you are not sympathetic to late Romantic/Impressionist music, last night's concert was not the place to be. If you are, it was wonderfully energetic and well-played. We enjoyed it a lot. I wish kids who know nothing of "music" before their own time were exposed to this sort of event more often. Add a light show, and it would blow away ANY of the cacophanous noise they think is good stuff at a rock show.
