Nice!! And really lovely programs as well.

I'll not go to anything until Kissin in London on the 6th of Feb.

Bad timing for me! I'm going to South Florida on November 14 but returning up North on November 18. Oh well.

Enjoy this concert.

Yuja Wang will be playing the Rachmaninoff Fourth Piano Concerto with the Cleveland Orchestra and conductor Lorenzo Viotti at Severance Hall Thanksgiving Weekend. I'll be there for the Saturday evening performance.

The composers want performers be imaginative, in the direction of their thinking--not just robots, who execute orders.

Holy smokes. Someone confiscate my credit card, please grin (nah, I've worked my backside off for the past months to be able to afford all this)

So I'll spend three months in Vienna next year, from mid Feb - mid May. And I just looked through all the programs and bought all the tickets (or, put the start of the ticket presale date into my calendar). So apart from hearing Kissin's Beethoven recital programme in London in February, I'll now go to:

- Renée Fleming and Evgeny Kissin, Musikverein
- Martha Argerich with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Konzerthaus

Martha Argerich being one of my lifelong pianistic idols, and the one I've somehow never managed to see live. I snatched up one of the last tickets and am actually a little weepy right now! I just hope she'll be there, after all her health has been a little shaky in recent years... oh please please please...

Not piano-related but still amazing:

- Sibelius / Tchaikovsky (with Alena Baeva!)
- "Leonore" at the Staatsoper
- "Der Rosenkavalier", also Staatsoper

And when I get home in mid May, I'll hear Pogorelich in Zagreb (or Šibenik, I haven't actually decided which).

I'd say I'm beginning to make up for the years of abstinence from classical music, wouldn't you? 3hearts

Just got back from the George Li Rach 3 concert with the fabulous NJSO. It's electrifying, just the kind you would expect from him (and more I think!)

Yes as I mentioned several posts back, I went to a solo recital featuring George Li a couple of months ago. His playing was just perfection.

I still feel a bit strange doing the self-promotion thing, but anyway, next week I will be performing in the DC FMMC Friday Concert Series; Calvary Baptist Church (Steinway D!!), in Chinatown. I'm playing two Jeux d'eau's lol. Details here: https://fmmc.org/event/friday-concert-series-3/

By the way, I have never heard a bad performance at any FMMC event so if you live in the DC Metropolitan Area and want to lose yourself in some beautiful music, please come. You won't regret it.

Wait. When did the Calvary Baptist Church get a Steinway D? They didn't have one for the last 2 recitals, did they?

Yep, it's a D, though not a very distinguished one. They've had it for several years.

I love Kate Liu. It's a pity the Atlantic is in the way.

Not yet, but I'm making a note smile

In other news, it's less than two weeks to Kissin in London and I'm beyond excited!
