10:36 - Sorry, I got distracted there for a moment by the music.  I'm not going to give away anything because I want you to see the show, but I can say that the Elgar piece is full of changing emotions and dynamics.  Sebastian is pretty incredible to my ear.

10:39 - I always like to see what the tech crew does with the stage - and at the moment, I'm seeing warm fall colors and some gorgeous flowers in reds and oranges.  In the spring, the flowers were green and purple, but they definitely have a fall feeling to them.

10:40 - oh, more music.  I'm not sure what movement they are on (I missed hearing it), but this is the aching, soulful portion of the programming.  There's some yearning and memory in this music.  Sigh.  :)

Ok, a quick search and read of the program notes indicates we're into the Adagio movement (Adagio from the Italian meaning "at ease"), the slow movement.  In the notes, it's described as 'soulful' and 'a private lament."  Very true.
