Enthusiastic rage for Rafał in Poznań

Rafał Blechacz played Chopin's concerto nr2 with the Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Wojciech Rodek who replaced Michael Sanderling because of his illness.
I received news about the concert from Roman Frackowski. My deep appreciation to him!

"Rafał is now on stage at the Aula of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań playing Chopin's No. 2. Before, in part 1, the orchestra played suites by Bizet and Faure. Michael Sanderling couldn't come because of illness so there is a replacement by Wojciech Rodek. Rafał had already played with him and yesterday rehearsals proved him OK for Rafał and orchestra too. Saturday for the general rehearsal at 18:15 in the same auditorium as today's concert there were 1000 people in attendance!! After today's concert there will an award ceremony."
(as of 19:30 local time)

"It was a thunder of standing ovation after Rafał and the orcherstra under Wojciech Rodek finished the Chopin's concerto No. 2 in Poznań Saturday night.
Again they couldn't stop clapping and shouting even though Rafał gave four encores! "
