Rafał Blechacz gave a recital at Konzerthaus Dortmund on October 14.
"Rafał played beautifully again in Dortmund's Konzerthaus. At the end he was rewarded with a big long lasting applause. The audience stood up, the entire house on their feet, and clapping and shouting couldn't stop. Rafał thanked them by playing Chopin's Polonaise As-dur Op. 53 as an encore. Very nice piano evening in Dortmund for Rafał and for the audience!"
And on Oct. 17, he will be back to Berliner Philharmoniker, to give the final recital in Germany in October.
From program page
".......Since then, Rafał Blechacz belongs to the absolute top of the international music scene. But the hype surrounding him does not rise in his head. When he is in his home town, Nakło nad Notecią of 20,000 residensts, he plays the organ on Sundays for the holy mass with exactly the same dedication that he gives to his concerts in the world's most important concert halls. His highly acclaimed balanced rubati, richness of colors and intelligent warmth of playing made him one of the best interpreters of the younger generation."
