Blechacz new CD got Gold first morning (Poland)

Rafał Blechacz's new CD "sonatas-haydn, mozart, beethoven" attained the level of Gold status in sales
in the morning of its pre-release in his native country Poland according to Gazeta pl. Bydgoszcz.

Gazeta pl. Bydgoszcz is here (English, machine-translated).
Polish original is here.

After briefly Introducing the new CD, including Blehcacz’s relations with these pieces for competitions in Bydgoszcz and Hamamatsu,
the article says that the new CD sold over five thousand copies in Empik (major music store chain in Poland)
in the morning yesterday (the article is dated Oct.3),
thus already attaining the level of Gold disk, although the new CD is not yet available in some cities of Poland.

The article says that Blechacz will record two Chopin’s concertos in line with 2010 Chopin year, followed by (maybe) two solo piano discs after that.

In Poland, Blechacz’s concert will not take place until March next year (concerto with Warsaw Phil),
but in 2010, there will be more concerts scheduled in his native country.

This is a review on the CD by Arkadiusz JĘDRASIK published by Nasz Dziennik.

Original Polish version is here.

The review is meticulously written and I cannot summarize it.
It says that there is a "rumor" about another three CD to be recorded (two solo piano and one concerto)
after the planned third CD Chopin concertos.

(Acknowledgment: these articles were found by Dana, a Polish fan. Thank you, as always.
Actually, the new CD is not yet available in her town as of Oct.4!!)
