Salle Gaveau

One of my students, Axelle, is a cellist. She studies at the Paris Conservatory of Music. She played in a concert last evening at the Salle Gaveau. Divinity was served:

Ludwig van Beethoven: "Coriolan" - Ouverture
Richard Wagner: "Siegfried Idyll"
Robert Schumann : Concerto pour piano et orchestre

We sat directly above the piano and watched the pianist's hands contort and fly. To finish, he played a morsel of Liszt to make us cry.
