That was such an amazing show; the phrasing, the intonation, the soft quiet bits and the silence was masterful. The music was just powerful and uplifting, in a low building sort of way. During the last piece (Grieg, Sonata No.3 for Violin and Piano in C Minor, Op. 45) before the encores, I caught myself not believeing it was almost over. The time just flew.

The two performers were so complimentary to each other, neither upstaging the otyher, but a beautiful partnership of sound, motion, and punctuated silences.

Joshua Bell can make more sounds and intonations fly out of a violin than I thought was possibly; and Jeremy Denk was right there with him as a counterplay/counterpart. Absolutely amazing show. If you ever get a chance to see either Joshua Bell or Jeremy Denk in concert, do so.
