From Briggs’ reviews:
'King of Kings' was a stroke of genius; the feedback has been great. One lady today, (first saying she had no idea what to expect) called it a 'life changing experience'... having NO spoken words made it all the more powerful.”
Right at the beginning of the concert Briggs made it clear that this evening would not be boring ….
Here was a technician at work who knew how to thrill his audience, but also had the musicality and humor that one frequently misses with great virtuosos.
