Preludia - Unofficial website for Rafal Blechacz


Dec 13, 2008

World name settled - Blechacz (Denmark) (Holland)

Web site of "Politiken" (=Policy), a newspaper/multimedia company in Denmark,
posted a mini-review on Blechacz's CD "sonatas"
as of Dec.10, 2008.

Young, world name publicized through piano work of art.

The young pianist Rafał Blechacz plays three Viennese classics in a semi-sparkling and balanced manner.

By Thomas Michelsen

Some CDs are wonderful and their strengths do not require many words, and here is a super simple example.

Three piano sonatas written by music history's three great Viennese classical composers
played so a semi-sparkling (Haydn in E flat major)
and hot, telling way (Beethoven's opus 2 No. 2 in A major and Mozart's K 311 in D-flat major)
that we should admire the Polish Rafał Blechaz for his second recording for Deutsche Grammophon.

Instead of Monday disease, it clears up again and again (←sorry this part is not clear).
After his over-prominent Chopin drew attention, Blechacz's name has now been firmly established.

Fine, balanced, delicate and extremely well-worked piano art from a new, young world name.

Original review (Danish)

In the spring 2009, Blechacz will play for recitals/concertos in Germany, Poland, France, Holland and Spain.

 I've been informed of the recitals schesuled in Holland by Jan, a fan of Blechacz there.
Thaaaank you very much, Jan, for such a precious information; some are new info for me.
He attended all the three Rafał's concerts at Amsterdam Concertgebouw
(Chopin E moll in Dec. 06, Recital in Oct.07 and Saint-Saëns in Aug.08);

Good news for those who live in Holland and neiboring countries, prawda?
