Rafał Blechacz will give a recital @Kultur- und Kongresszentrum Liederhalle (Beethoven-Saal), Stuttgart on December 13, his final official concert in 2010.
It has been reported that Jahrespreis der Schallplattenkritik (Annual prize of the record critics) will be given to him on this occasion.
Blechacz played Chopin's concerto in E minor with ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra at Konzerthaus in Vienna on December 10. His inspiriting interpretation enthralled and deeply fascinated nearly 2000 sophisticated music lovers of the art capital. Young conductor Cornelius Meister was fully supportive of Blehcacz's tempo-sensitive rendition. People never ended applauding to prompt him to offer two encores.
"I was fully satisfied with the wonderful piano music for the first time in long time," my acquaintance, a resident in Vienna said.
I obtained program book and it gives a full-fledged description of Blechacz's bio. It refers to his first CD from Deutsche Grammophon "Preludes" receiving 2008 ECHO Klassik Award and this concert is his second time at Konzerthaus following his debut recital in 2007.
