While there’s some doubt whether Yoni Levyatov is really mad, there’s no doubt about Dubal. He’s a hurricane in his Master Class. The kids weather the storm and even relish it. Its something to see.

Alon Goldstein plays an early Brahms Scherzo (Op. 4). I like young Brahms’ abstract Romantic genius. It scrubs the brain in a pleasing way. Goldstein pleases the crowd with Ginastera dances. In a brilliant touch, he encores quietly with Bach ‘Joy of Man.’ A communal moment of palpable love in the concert hall. ‘A good night,’ says my friend.

My week one pass is used up. Next week I’ll do Master Classes.
