Literally every song made me feel something, or remember something, or put a smile to my face, or made me think, or made me frown. It was refreshing as it was moving. I thought your music was so beautiful. After the concert I remember going back to my apartment and feeling this sense of warmth. The warmth started during the concert and lingered with me for a while after the concert, literally a whole week after. I’ve been to a lot of concerts here and yours was the only one that made me feel that kind of warmth inside. It’ll always be memorable to me.
I’m normally unimpressed by even the best music and musicians. It is so rare that I hear magic in someone’s music. That piece stirred emotions I didn’t even know I was feeling; it felt like I was screaming out emotions on top of the notes and getting inside my heart. An incredible elation mixed with sorry.
