I clapped from my seat, but had I not been suffering from jet lag I would have given it a standing ovation.
I loved the piano playing of Kiril Gerstein. Virtuosity and musicality.

Beethoven's 7th sounded beautiful. It made me rethink the reasons I disliked Beethoven in my youth. I must have heard it played in an overdone pompous manner, and at this concert the interpretation was completely different, giving me pure enjoyment of this music.

Bach's D major Suite I perceived very physically -- sunshine.
