Report by PAP site about the concert.
(excerpt of interview with Blechacz and Nowak)
Immediately after the concert, Rafał Blechacz said in an interview with PAP, that before the concert at the prestigious Salle Pleyel, he didn’t get particularly nervous but rather very "excited". He explained that on the day of the concert he would concentrate solely on music, avoiding all other activities that might distract him, such as interviews for the media.
Grzegorz Nowak noted after the Friday's concert that "the orchestra was great, and Rafał proved to be excellent”. "I played with Rafał Blechacz for the first time and we had only one rehearsal just before the concert. Time was limited, but mutual understanding was gained immediately”, said Nowak.
"Tickets have been sold out long ago".
