Even when I was no longer consciously listening, I could feel her music affecting my body, changing the expression of my face, altering my breathing or bringing tears to my eyes. Some of the descriptions of her playing that I heard from others who were there were “fantastic,” “intimate,” “rigorous,” “sublime’ and “wow.”
