I was there also and I agree -- Mr. Formenti was splendid and the concert was outstanding. I thought Mr. Salonen's interpretation of the Bartok Concerto for Orchestra was particularly stunning.

I attended the 3/15/11 performace, it was breathtaking. Mr. Formenti plays with an intense passion I have not seen in years.
