I’m very happy with tonight’s concert — the best Zo yet, I think. The piano was sounding great, and most pieces went well — several about as well as I’ve ever played them. None of yesterday’s muddle-headedness (what was that about, anyway?). The audience seemed to be right with me the whole time — Carei actually laughed out loud after Entropic (messy though it was), and they all seemed pleased afterwards … at least I think so, though I’ll let them speak for themselves by posting comments below (hint hint).
Shirley & Tom Kysilko have the distinction of being my first repeat Zo listeners. Congratulations! Please accept this blog post as a modest prize.

Still trying to figure out the mechanics of the ritual of these concerts: how to start it, how to end it, how to welcome people on their way in and out, etc. I gave a little spoken introduction to the concert; not sure if that was helpful to the audience or not, though I do think it gave me a better chance to focus myself. Any thoughts from those who were there?
