Comments : I was extremely lucky to score a couple of tickets for tonight's very sold out concert. I don't usually attend classical concerts so tonight was my first (and probably only ?) time at Maison Symphonique. Nevertheless, the venue is absolutely beautiful and the sound is really great. It is also extremely enjoyable to sit through a whole show without anyone talking. I was a bit disappointed that Philip Glass did not join the OSM when they performed Concerto Fantasy, but watching him play Mad Rush was definitely worth it.
