Bit of a sticky wicket,that.
Just came back from an amazing concert by Steven Schick, who directs the La Jolla Symphony and who is possibly the world's greatest living percussionist. AN amazing performance--impassioned, rich, and executed with impeccable virtuosity on percussion instruments ranging from flower pots to tympani. Incredible. This was held at a sort of garden party in a beautiful home overlooking the Pacific from the bluffs just at the edge of the UCSD campus. The place was just frying with brilliant minds and the performance was mind-blowing. Who'd'a thunk it?
