Hi all! Last night I went to watch Sergei Nakariakov perform with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. It was really good and a great experience since I've never went to the orchestra before. Sergei played Haydn's trumpet concerto and Shostakovich's piano and trumpet concerto. He was extremely clear and effortless. It was amazing! He had such a powerful sound without even looking uncomfortable. Sergei contained such a vast sound that captured everyone. The only thing which I didn't like was that he only played the two songs! I was really hoping to hear more from him. Is this normal? The piano player, Ignat Solzhenitsyn, played an encore and Sergei never showed up again! Oh well, still a great concert.
