Concert #774 - Stephen Hough at the Walt Disney Concert Hall (April 10, 2016)

Another classical music event attended by Yours Truly. Once again, I filled in for someone who couldn't go and once again I had a moderately good time at best. Pianist Stephen Hough and the orchestra conducted by James Gaffigan delivered a powerful rendition of Liszt's Piano Concerto no. 1, a piece of music that I knew very well. This turned out to be the high point of the concert, as the other two pieces, Brahms and Strauss, did not manage to grab me.
