Barbara Brown's Classical Moment

  
I was driving to the grocery store recently and KXPR announced the next selection – Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto – the soloist, Alicia DeLarrocha.  As the opening chords were played, I was transported to Davies Hall, San Francisco.  This was the primary number for a concert that marked Ms. DeLarrocha’s 50th Anniversary Tour. I don’t remember the year, but I know I was there.  I parked the care and simply let this gorgeous music wash over me.  The clarity and talent of this amazing, petite dynamo has never been surpassed.  I was very thankful to be able to re-create that wonderful experience.
