In performance: McGegan, Levin at the BSO

In today's Washington Post: Beethoven improv at the BSO with Levin, McGegan, by Anne Midgette.

The concert repeats tonight at Strathmore; it's worth attending.

Tim Smith also reviewed it in the Baltimore Sun.

Noteworthy, with regard to my remarks about improvisation: a reader pointed out to me that improvisation has remained very much a part of the performance tradition for organists.

I reviewed the Saturday performance:

It sounds like Thursday's audience got a better improvised fantasy than Saturday's did. I've heard Levin do better improvised fantasies.
