Hot Times

Herbst Theater felt like a Turkish bath last night, with the heating system apparently under the impression that it was protecting concert-goers from Arctic temperatures. Thomas Ades had to mop himself off about every five minutes, but he burned up the keyboard anyway, earning bravos for a brilliantly programmed and subtly played program of Janacek, Liszt/Wagner, Prokofiev, Schubert, Ades, and Beethoven. My full review will be in SFCV, but if he's playing this program anywhere near you, buy a ticket right now.
