Fine program on inaugural night in Verizon Hall where Chistoph Eschenbach was back conducting the Curtis Symphony Orchestra with guest pianist and alum Meng-Chieh Liu. Liu’s technically lush command in Samuel Barber’s opus 38 piano concerto just splashed over the audience, with Curtis’ mighty strings again smashing any wormholes in Verizon. Lui has made a remarkable return to the concert stage after an immobilizing muscle disease with his doctors giving him zero chance of resuming his concert career. His knowledge of his own body, will & therapy proved them wrong.
