I really enjoyed the concert that evening. I am a German major, so it was very interesting for me to listen to some of his music sung in the original German. The three musicians that were performing were outstanding. I especially enjoyed the collaboration piece between the piano and cello. Honestly, it knocked my socks off; the music was just so passionate and skillfully executed. Kudos to these great performers (whose names I can't quite remember right now).

This was a wonderful, user-friendly lecture by a leading authority in a much-neglected field of American studies, and he was a delight to listen to!
