La Grange Symphony Orchestra Season Finale

"The opening work for this evening’s LaGrange Symphony Orchestra concert was the vaulted Cello Concerto in b minor of Antonin Dvorak. Cellist Wendy Warner appeared with Maestro Cobos and seated herself at the front of the stage, adjusting the endpin of her cello until it was just right. That it WAS just right was proven for the duration of the concerto, as measure by measure her playing was, at times, intemperate and brutish, followed by the most tender playing one could imagine being invoked from a musical instrument of only four strings and a bow. I could not detect one flaw in her performance. The fingerboard technique as Ms. Warner playfully pranced up and down in double stops of major sixths and octaves, was a pure delight. I caught myself smiling several times during this performance."
