Last night I was brought to tears by a musical performance. I don't think that had ever happened to me before. I suppose singing in the big choir concerts in college was emotional, but actually feeling something I couldn't describe or express other than through tears is new to me. We went to the Minnesota Orchestra's performance of Beethoven's Concerto in D major for Violin and Orchestra, Opus 61; and Sibelius's Symphony No. 6 in D minor, Opus 104. Lisa Batiashvili was the soloist on violin, and I was and remain stunned by her. All things good.
