About a week ago I attended probably the most amazing concert I have ever attended! It was called Firebird Festival and it was sooooo good. The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra played Shostakovich's Festival Overture (one of my favorites), Sibelius' Finlandia, The Firebird Suite by Stravinsky and Rachmaninoff's first piano concerto, with soloist Hong Xu, who I actually talked to afterwards! Rachmaninoff's first concerto is one of my favorites pieces so it was sooo exciting to hear it played by with an incredible pianist!
