Thanks everyone for coming last night!! Hope you enjoyed the show. You can find me at or [email protected], James at, and here's the link for tomorrow's concert with Raushan and her quartet playing more of the Kazakh Sketches at Davies Hall!

Spectacular performance in a fantastic venue. Post continues to be the poster child of post-modernistic (e.g. tonal and delightful) composition and performance. I'm sure he'll reap plenty of post-humous recognition. But get in there while he's still alive.

Fabulous evening - thanks to the hosts, who helped make it so nice; the music, and the good fellowship, was tremendous.
