Hi - Did you go? I did. It was a terrific concert. Temirkanov is a very interesting conductor - very, very reserved; no eye contact with orchestra members either during or at the concludion of the concert. Alisa Weilerstein was amazing - very complex piece. Orchestra has lots of depth in brass and winds.
