Standing ovation in Łódź - Rafał Blechacz

"Tonight Rafał Blechacz played Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 in Łódź Philharmony with Artur Rubinstein Philharmonic Orchestra of Łódź under the baton of Christian Ehwald.
He played in the 2nd part of the concert. Just finished half an hr ago.
The house was full and additional rows of seats had to be added.

When he finished the audience roared with applause and there was no end to the standing ovation. After the first encore there was again a standing ovation and again and again after two more encores.
A big success!

On Saturday Rafał plays the same Concerto in Poznań with the Poznań Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Michael Sanderling.
At the concert in Poznań Platinum Disk Award and two Fryderyk Awards will be handed over to Rafał by the President of Universal Music Poland.
