From a blog in Milan - Rafał Blechacz recital

From a blog kept by a male music lover in Cremona, Italy, writing about the recital given by Rafał Blechacz on Jan. 26.

Original (Italian)

Rafał Blechacz returns to Milan
The young Polish pianist Rafał Blechacz - born in 1985, winning first prize at the Chopin in Warsaw in 2005 - has returned to Milan after the concerto in January 2008 with the Orchestra Verdi. And he returned to a solo recital as a guest for the first turn of the Quartet.
The first part of the concert opened with a program may still not be congenial to Blechacz: Part I BWV 825 by Bach and the Sonata KV 570 by Mozart. Much more convincing was Debussy's Pour le piano.
The real highlight of the concert was the second part, all dedicated to Chopin, a composer whom Blechacz playes at the highest level. Scherzo No 1 op. 20, the Three Mazurkas Op. 50, Polonaise-Fantasie op. 61 were three gems, which showed all the technical and poetic talent of the great pianist. The Chopin by Blechacz conquered the room. The conclusion was two encores: the Mazurka op. 17 No 4 by Chopin and the Scherzo of Op. 2 No 2 by Beethoven.
