The Queen will cultivate her love of classical music. She wants to attend a piano recital by the young Polish.
Queen Sofia has received an invitation to return to the Valldemossa Chopin Festival, Aug. 29, to the recital of Rafał Blechacz, first prize in the Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. The Queen attended the opening ceremony on Sunday on the occasion of her stay in Mallorca.

After the concert on Sunday, the Queen personally congratulated the Baleares Symphony Orchestra, Antoni Wit, director of the Warsaw Philharmonic, and pianist Ivan Martin for their performance.
Queen Sofia was named president of honor of the festival and museum of Valldemossa in 1990. (English)

My guess is that the amiable, elegant and graceful queen loves the noble touch of Rafał Blechacz.

One of my colleagues decided to go to Blechacz's recital in October after spotting this ad on the newspaper in June.
