Review of SF Conservatory Concert

Scott Cmiel, in the San Francisco Classical Voice, has posted a review of the Oct. 11, 2008 concert at the San Francisco Conservatory.

Tanenbaum is without peer in this music. He captured every mood to perfection — ebullient opening, mournful solo, building determination, and painful conclusion — with an amazing command of color, time, and empathy.
