The live recording Tuesday was from the series last week with Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. I’m not sure when the CD will be released. The Silk Road selections varied in quality from fascinating to awful, but it should make for a pretty interesting CD. I wouldn’t be surprised if it outsells all of the recordings the CSO is supposed to release in the next couple years. I made the mistake of riding my bike to the concert that night. Because of the patch session, I found myself pedaling home into a frigid, howling headwind at 12:30 AM.

Howling head winds are why cabs were invented.
