We just had our first rehearsal tonight of the Sibelius with her... wow.
One thing people may not realize is that, at a rehearsal, the usual procedure is to play through a movement, then go back and work on spots; then play through the next movement and work on spots; then play through the NEXT movement and work on spots. The soloist often has to play passages over and over again so the orchestra can get their act together. (Or sometimes it's so the conductor can figure out what the soloist is doing...)
Basically tonight she played the entire Sibelius TWICE, except for the 1st mvt. cadenza, and kicked butt all the way through. Very impressive.
