I loved the show! Never before had I head music of Benjamin Button, but I find his voice unique and captivating, and I thank you for exposing me to it.

That being said, there is one question I am dying to ask –– what was the name of the first piece that you played during the introduction. It started with a very interesting and quirky piano solo followed by a more rhythmic texture in which the piano was joined by strings and eventually by winds. I found this piece extremely interesting, and it was this in fact what hooked me in for the rest of the program. Because it was interrupted, however, by the introduction to the program, I didn't get to hear the rest, and I was hoping that you could tell me the name of the piece so that I could look it up elsewhere.
