For those of you interested, here is a link to an Ann Arbor review of the concert I went to. If you scroll down to the bottom you can see Dr. Nel play the piece he played for the encore. The one that made me cry.
And for those dog lovers out there, Katie and I were in obedience class tonight. She was “on” right from the start, though she threw up right at the beginning of the heeling. Don’t know what that was about, she was fine the rest of the class. During the long 3 minute sits and longer downs I was standing away from her, arms folded, watching her watch other dogs get up and I thought – “Sometimes I just love you so much Katie-girl!” She was SO GOOD!

Yay Katie! Glad she was ok after her little stomach upset.
I’ll come back afterwork and listen to the music. Oreo loves classical music, I’ll see how he reacts to this piece.

Very beautiful piece and playing (although the computer speakers didn’t do it justice)! Schumann wrote some very poignant melodies. Check out the slow movement of the Schumann Piano Quartet in Eflat some day:
