One thought on “Oppens, Levin, Rands; Karis, Feldman”

  1. Dear Christian,

    I was so happy to see you at the Bernard Rands concert, and wanted to thank you for the splendid review. It was a magnificent evening, indeed, giving much New York exposure to this significant composer of our time, and to the two extraordinary pianists, Robert Levin and Ursula Oppens, who performed so exceptionally well.

    All best to you,

    Laura
