The Voice

Lorraine Hunt Lieberson’s voice was soaring over my head…literally, three feet above me. It was on fire with the intensity of ten suns, summoned by the passion of John Adams’ La Anunciacion from El Nino. For five performances, I was utterly transfixed by the incredible beauty of the sound and it was all I could do to concentrate and keep playing.

I’ll never have that chance again…
