An amiable, enjoyable novelty, then, rather than a work of great musical depth; as a showcase for (Liam) Teague's incredible virtuosity, however, it served the purpose. The audience exploded in cheers and whistles, refusing to let Teague leave the stage until he had given them a solo encore.

Bach's concerto was the evening's highlight.

The first movement, "Reflections," is as lyrical as its title might indicate -- it's pleasant and eminently enjoyable. But in the second movement, "Toccata," things really perk up and get interesting. The music is appropriately calypso- and jazz-flavored, but Bach manages to let any number of other influences and traditions peek in.
