Don't forget she's a guest on this afternoon's 'In Tune' program on the BBC's classical radio station Radio 3 (www.bbc.co.uk/radio3 - click on Programmes, then 'I' for In Tune), starting at 1630 BST (just under 3 hours from now). She'll probably be playing a few pieces on the studio Steinway B to wet our appetites for tomorrow....

Aha, you spotted the deliberate mishtake grin.
I believe guests on the program turn up on the day with a list of what they want to play, usually around 15 minutes' worth of music (plus chat). So we won't know until she arrives.

They'll probably have a nice piano down on the stage; I'm sure nobody will mind if you use it. wink

Yes, why not play the Appassionata followed by several Rachmaninov pieces? Kind of a pre concert recital.

That's why I chose them!

Is Royal Albert Hall as amazing to English people as I guess it is to most Americans? It makes Carnegie Hall or Avery Fischer Hall look like my living room. The first time I saw RAH was when I Youtubed the celebratory performance of Jerusalem from the Proms.

Ouch Rachmaninoff not going so well IMO. Tempo choices too extreme. Too much risk in 39/6 and 23/5. 32/12 rushed. 32/10 messed up the most important moment (the cadenza).

Currently playing Liszt Todtentanz. Never heard a solo version, but it's just as impressive.

For me who knows nothing about classical music, it is not about the note-by-note mistakes but this is the moment an average music lover can appreciate Classical Music and the effort behind it.

It's not as good as her youtube video I'll give you that, but still very impressive the way she pulled it off live.
