  1. I haven't been at the Kloster Polling, but I can imagine that the acoustic there would be excellent. Also the building and hall look very pretty. I prefer this kind of hall to morden and big ones. As I promised you I'd try to collect some reviews about Blechacz. You'd better know that German critics are often too critical. So don't be shocked;-)

  2. All the best to our great artist! :)

  3. Dear lotus-eater,
    Yes, it must have a wonderful acoustics and atmosphere making the music further special. Thanks for your kind offer. For the past four years, I have NEVER seen a critical review of Blechacz's performances/recordings from Germany, at least from the media on the Internet. Thanks also for your info about Prinzregententheater. I had the opportunity to visit this hall in August during my summer vacation. It's a very good venue in a quiet environment.
    Sorry for the delay in replying; I've been on a business trip.

  4. Dear Maria Pia, your wishes were heard; it was a great success at Palais des Beaux-Arts on Sept.15 and Rafał was said to have played the Rubinstein way. Just imagining it gives me a lot of emotions.
