St. Louis Symphony Update, 8 October 2010
This weekend at the St. Louis Symphony: a fun new piece with audience participation by rock guitarist-turned-composer Steven Mackey, a respectable Grieg Piano Concerto with Andre Watts (one of the finest pianists of my generation), and a truly great Dvorak 8th. Gilbert Varga conducts and the orchestra seems to love him, with good reason. Full review to follow some time Saturday. Concert information at http://slso.org
