Alastair Neale conducted the best Eroica I have heard, and I have heard it in New York City as a college girl at Sarah Lawrence studying music, after that, the cites I lived in: Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and Boston. This performance here in our little mountain town was the best. Why? He worked the contrasts perfectly. Thanks, Alastair! It was a treat!
