June 13, 2017 at 06:33 AM · I heard Steven Copes perform Pierre Jalbert's Violin Concerto at the Friday morning concert. He played with every nuance and all the brilliance that Jalbert demands, then even more. I've been lucky enough to hear this guy play most of the season!

I just hope they made a recording of this concerto.

This program was the season finale for the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. The concert opened with Mendelssohn's "Fair Melusina" Overture and concluded with Beethoven's Symphony No. 7.
