Blechacz made a huge success in NY Phil debut

Breathtakingly beautiful piano sound....the second movement was the finest.
There is no way to describe how it was touching.


"Tam było super, prawda?"  

An attendant at the New York Philharmonic concert (who wants to be anonymous) says
that Blechacz's Chopin piano concerto No.2 was the greatest.

The NY phil concert program is a suite of three folk (regional) music according to Alsop.

Bartók:
The Wooden Prince Suite
Chopin:
Piano Concerto No. 2
Dvorák:
Symphony No. 9, From the New World

Conductor is Marin Alsop, music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.



After Bartók's colorful, animated and large sound reverberated in Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall full of NY Phil’s fans,
Chopin’s lyrical concerto No. 2 started.

The air changed suddenly.
The piano sound produced by Blechacz was pure, clear and profound (and perfectly accurate.)

The pianist had good communications with the conductor.
He had a freedom of playing on his way.
The entire audience was absorbed by the beauty of his piano.

When Blechacz ended the piano part in the final movement, people started applauding before orchestra finishing the movement.

Big applause and standing ovation. Voices of bravo echoed.

Blechacz bowed returning a big smile to the excited audience and praised the orchestra.
He joined hands with Alsop to thank the audience.

The audience of NY are fair and straightforwardly reward to the performer by demonstrating their joy
if and when the performance is really fulfilling.

Today's audience loved Blechacz's piano very much.
