My life on each coast has taken me to see over a dozen concerts led by Valery Gergiev, this fall has added to that number. I’m always left with a deep, lingering space in my memory of him leading the music while the Kirov danced Scheherezade in Berkeley, about ten years ago now. There was a profound silence among all the patrons as we walked away from the hall, interrupted by this truth from an older gentleman: “that was the greatest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”
