Thank you so very much for your beautiful performance last of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 (3 movements with the Cincy Chamber Orch).

With your "flamboyant" dress, I knew you could "take on" Beethoven's flash. But what I didn't expect (and keep thinking about) was that you made a piano whisper.

I thought you were fantastic.

All best,

Scott Provancher

Great concert! It's a small world...Long story short, I am currently a VP at the Cincinnati Fine Arts Fund and know Pete Blackshaw through Leadership Cincinnati. Before coming to Cincy, I was the Executive Director of the Louisville Orchestra and have worked at several orchestras where you have performed. Until I met Pete, I didn't relaize that you lived in Cincy. Glad to have you here and look forward to more of your performances.

The concert was superb. In every respect. We all had a great time.

  • Brahms 1 in Winston-Salem
    This week brings a return to one of my favorite homes away from home. I've played with this orchestra a number of times, and conducted them once. Last year I played my first Rhapsody in Blue with them, and now return for what is pretty much my favorite concerto, the titanic, volcanic Brahms 1st Piano Concerto. This piece demands the greatest level of physical, psychological, emotional resources, and stamina of any concerto. Yeah......
  • Beethoven 5th Concerto
    For the last several years, this university has hosted the Next Generation Festival, of which I'm the artistic director. They not only are renovating their music building, but have just made a purchase of a very lovely hall in Lancaster, former home of the Pennsylvania Academy of Music. I'm looking forward to seeing and playing in this space.
  • Beethoven 4th Piano Concerto
    Haven't been back in over 15 yrs. Should be nice. I did my first Beethoven 1 there, now my umpteenth Beethoven 4. I've heard they've come a long way since then..... So have I!
