"I'm not usually one to pay undue attention to such things, when enormous peals of thunder rolled into Trinity-St. Paul's just as Benjamin Alard was beginning the minor-key 25th variation of the Goldbergs, the most intense Passion music Bach ever wrote outside of his official Passions, it was hard not to feel as though a greater critic than any of us was expressing sympathy and appreciation for Alard's playing. It seemed to fit. It was that kind of evening. Thursday night, that kind of performance."
