    Program notes are here.  The Copland was a relatively gentle warm-up, as you can imagine.  Orli was very, very good in the Bernstein, although the piece seemed a touch diffuse.  I suddenly realized that I don't think that I'd ever heard LB's The Age of Anxiety, even on record, or I certainly don't remember it.  I might even be motivated to dig up the poem at some point.

    The Adams was rather loud and brash, with Robertson clearly having a good time, but I thought that the quieter and slower moments were more effective, if only because they were less cluttered, by default.  The saxophonist was excellent, and it'll be interesting to see him in the fall with the new concerto.
