Chopin concerto in F minor, 2nd movement, by Rafał Blechacz

Deutsche Grammophon, 2009
Rafał Blechacz
Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
Jerzy Semkow

I felt cleansed by the beautiful rendition when passing hectic days.
A moment of soul searching.
Here is a reason why I cannot detach my heart from this artist's sound.

The way the pictures are arranged nicely in synch with the music is admirable.
Recently I travelled in Germany. This video was a reminiscent of the beautiful, peaceful scenery that I saw in the southern Bavarian region.

It also let me remember Seoul, Korea where I stayed a few days for a business trip four years ago and I spent my spare time walking along some lovely streets listening to RB's music, feeling a perfect match between sight and sound...(and soul!)

**Actually it is a landscape of Poland in autumn, according to the description by the author on Youtube.


  1. wow that's a really beautiful vid!Rafal playing,amazing pictures in the background...what more can one ask :-)

  2. "what more can one ask" --I often feel so when listening to Rafał's piano...but I often want to return to this piano. What a contradiction!
