Gianandrea Noseda -- The most animated and alive conductor I've ever seen. An amazing performance, by the symphony and by the conductor. He was almost literally jumping all over the podium. It was a sheer delight to watch. And to hear. He seemed to control the orchestra with a sheer grasp as he conducted The Firebird -- fully lyric 1910 version, not often heard!
Additionally, Yefim Bronfman was fabulous with the Prokofiev piano concerto No. 3, which blended so well with the orchestra in amazing fashion. The slow movement was superb!

This photo was taken on the street outside of Heinz Hall.
