Thanks for the info. May I ask how do you know? Is it posted somewhere? I looked at her site where there's a calendar and it doesn't show any concerts the rest of September.

I am her host for our concert association and have had that privilege several times before. We went to the theater this afternoon to make sure the upload speed of the internet was fast enough.

Thanks for posting that LuvLiszt.

And since you LuvLiszt here's a very recent recorded piece , that went up on her Youtube channel last week. You may have already heard this, but I am sure others may enjoy this wonderful performance.

That Totentanz is unbelievable. If I keep watching it, I might get nothing else done today!

Suggest putting the recording on 720 and full screen. VL is right there live and personal!

Do you know what her program will be?

Unfortunately, I probably won't be able to tune in at that time, but depending on the program, I can always get "sick" smile

The concert is at 19:30 local and we are UTC -6. I believe that is 01:30 GMT. The link has not been established yet, but it will be ustream/valentinalisitsa.
For JGonzalezGUS: she has concerts in Nebraska & Texas next week that are not posted either.
Thank you for the video Dara. I have seen her play it live several times.
Tonight, she will perform-Rachmaminoff:1Etude & 4Preludes, Beethoven: Appassionata, Chopin: 3Waltzes, 6Etudes & 7Nocturnes, Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2.

Off topic, but this is the first time I heard her playing Scriabin!

Sonata #2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPMuW57CKI4

I think the first part is very beautiful.
But the second part seems a bit too wild and messy to me.
(if you're new to this piece check out Richter and Hamelin who keep a better flow in the second part IMO)

Hmm. Well, she's never going to be mistaken as a Beethoven specialist is she? Haha.

I'm starting to like her Chopin etude's (even though I still don't very much like the etude's that much, except for some), but you are imo right about this.

I didn't think her etudes last night were all that good on the whole.

I've got very mixed feelings about Valentina Lisitsa. She gets all the notes, her tempo is fine, her dynamics are there but somehow I find her playing doesn't move me. For me, there's just something missing.



Best regards,

Deborah

Wasn't able to see them, only saw her youtube video's of them.

Yes i know what you mean. At times she is very good, but i prefer pianists like Neuhaus, as they seem to have something more...

I also feel she's missing that. Her playing is polished well in a way that one passage would smoothly flow to the next and be very pleasant to the ear. But when the piece ends, I have no clear idea of the story she intended to portray.

I think her virtue is also her nemesis. I've heard she can memorize and perform extremely long pieces in a rediculously short period of time.
In order to trigger the audience emotionally, one must understand the story the piece is bringing forth, and create his own version of it which he can best relate to.
No matter how good a pianists is, this process takes time (as limited by our human nature), and the longer you have with a piece, the better it sinks in. For short, I think she needs to sit down with a piece longer..

Not all great pianists have a story, image, etc. in mind when the play. Even if they did, I doubt many would expect the listener to have the same image or story from hearing their performance.

I said a story, not an image. They aren't the same thing. The story is merely for the pianist to organize the piece in a way that develops in a certain way as it goes along, and doesn't just stay in one place. The story helps to play not only one bar against the other, or one phrase against another, in a way that doesn't sound repetitive, but also the beginning of the piece against the end.
It doesn't necessarily need to be visual or logical, as long as it progress.
Listeners don't need to see any image actually, in order to feel that the piece signified something the moment it ended.

However, the above doesn't hold for pieces written in the Baroque period.

I suspect the complexity and strict form in Baroque music causes some listeners to miss the deep emotions woven into it. I find Baroque to be extremely emotive and it affects me deeply yet there is a sense of order that makes me feel very peaceful.

The comments above about Valentina needing more time to absorb the music are interesting and true. My understanding and ability to express my music does indeed grow with time. Occasionally I encounter a piece or a passage that leaves me scratching my head, "What was the composer trying to say here?." Believe it or not, I am most often flommoxed by Beethoven. I can play the notes, dynamics, etc. pretty well, but I have difficulty understanding what I am playing. I have to live with the music for a while, sing it, conduct it in my head, hum it in the shower and fall asleep hearing it until I finally "get it."


Best regards,

Deborah
