  1. Thanks for putting the SSV link up. These are definitely difficult times for orchestras and we appreciate the publicity!

    I hope you checked out those videos of Gabriela Montero too … she is simply amazing!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. Patty, thank you so much for your comment! Reading your blog,, shows me I forgot two things in my review here. First, I should link to the wonderful Symphony Silicon Valley, so others can find and attend performances as well, and so it is ever more well supported. Secondly, for those interested in seeing the amazing Gabriela Montero, here is her website. Enjoy! :)

  3. I am in the orchestra, although I wasn’t on stage for the Rachmaninoff. (I was playing English horn and it’s not called for in that work.) I LOVED Montero! She played a total of six improvisational encores, all quite different, throughout the weekend. We are so blessed to have managed to get her with such short notice.

    It’s fun to read your review!

    (And yes, concertos are usually in three movements.)
