Lisa, I met Jerry at a Carter symposium in Minnesota in 2006 and found him to be a warm and interesting man. We had several enlightening conversations about Carter, and he sent me a recording of his performance of Mr. Carter's Piano Concerto. Unfortuantely, it's too late for me to fly to San Francisco today, and I'm sorry you can't make the concert, either. I would have asked to to say hello for me. And I'd would have recommended that you ask him to tell you his story about playing Carter's Piano Sonata for the composer.

I will hear him eventually - and he writes for SFCV, as do I, so maybe we will be at the same event at some point. If I see him....I'll say hi from you.
