Luckily for us, our good friend Grant is a cousin of one the world’s most gifted musicians. With Grant’s help, we were able to score five seats in the second row at the resplendent Davies Symphony Hall for last night’s performance by Cliburn winner Jon Nakamatsu. I simply do not have words to describe the skill and talent displayed by Mr. Nakamatsu. I could say the performance was stunning, incredible and beautiful, but that doesn’t really give you any idea of what it’s like to see him play live – especially backed by Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony. This is truly one of the world’s rarest of gifts. Bravo!!
