It was a great concert. The contralto, Nathalie Stutzmann was perfect for this Wagner piece.
The Bruckner 7th Symphony was so beautiful, even that long, about 75 minutes. The NSO performed perfectly.
Great evening.

Really enjoyed it. Nathalie Stutzmann has a unique voice and passion for music. Needless to say, the NSO performance was impressive.
