The percussion section can be the unsung hero of the symphony orchestra. But, thanks to this inspired Twitter review of a San Francisco Symphony concert, no longer.
Percussionist Rob Knapper has posted a picture of this fantastic Twitter review from an audience member in a San Francisco Symphony concert from March 2015.
The review, which is certainly pithy and powerful, extols the virtues of the orchestra’s triangle player during a well-received performance of Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No. 8.
We’ve pixellated it below, and then embedded the original tweet (and accompanying email) beyond that. In case you’re worried about that kind of thing.
