She was doing the Kreisler cadenza, lol.
I envy the audience in Cleveland who got to hear Isabelle Faust. From her recordings and YouTube performances, I place her among the very best violin soloists going.
I did get to hear James Ehnes, with Kent Nagano, perform the Beethoven concerto today via live feed from the Gothenburg Symphony. I predict he'll get great reviews from the Swedish media; meantime, he's got one from me.
