Bravo to Andrés Cárdenes – Doug Bauman

I thought that Andrés Cárdenes was sensational with the solo and together with the PSO on Friday night, they performed a fantastic rendition of Symphonie espagnole by Édouard Lalo. I've heard that piece before, but I've never seen it live. It is a piece of music I very much liked already, and this performance was even better than any I recall. I watched Mr. Cárdenes play. It was amazing to me how quickly his fingers moved over the violin, at how well it sounded. I can't even conceive of anything requiring that much dexterity, and his adroitness was apparent. I just wanted to say congratulations on a fantastic concert performance. I hope we hear more of Mr. Cárdenes in the upcoming 2009-2010 season as well.
