Symphony!  
...Was freakin' awesome.

Everything was good.

Berlioz, Roman Carnival Overture. Grieg, Peer Gynt Suite No. 1 (the only not-as-bright moment of the night -- no chorus). Camille Saint-Saëns, Bacchanale from Samson et Dalila (a pleasant surprise, not listed on the web page).

Then, Van Cliburn playing Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor. Totally awesome.

Then, two encores by Van Cliburn. Totally totally awesome.

I really wish I knew what the first piece was (sounded vaguely like Liszt), the second was Chopin's Polonaise in A-Flat Major. I must find out somehow, maybe somebody reviewed the concert or something.

Did I mention it was totally awesome? Because it was completely totally awesome.
 
 
In the mood: ecstatictotally awesome
Now playing: Chopin - Polonaise In A-Flat Major (Van Cliburn was better)
