This concert was a delight to the ear, but a full dessert to the eye! The experience of sitting in the Murphy auditorium was what you might expect if you could sit inside a multi-tiered wedding cake with all the decorations on the inside!
So much gilded plaster decoration does one rarely see anymore today.
Truly the auditorium of a prince and I felt just like that prince sitting for the premiers of Beethoven that were offered.
Grand beyond belief, the music fit the decor without a doubt.
