Being able to attend a concert at L.A.M.P. last night with the great Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer, cellist Giedrė Dirvanauskaitė, and pianist, Walter Delahunt was an extraordinary bit of luck (thank you, Jules Chamberlain!). Beethoven's Triple Concerto Op.56 arranged by Carl Reinecke was extraordinary and stood out in an evening of excellence. It was one of the greatest exercises in listening I’ve ever had given my seat, as you can see... I closed my eyes and it was the violinist, the cellist, the pianist and me. Oh, and the dog, Israel, ever patiently waiting under the piano throughout. No kidding. For a surprise encore, Maestro Kremer invited out his students lucky enough to study with him this past week. They played Astor Piazzolla’s ‘Oblivion’. It was gorgeous. I so hope they make a recording of their trio...
