From KlassikAkzente 03/2011, (dated November 10, 2011)
Please see the final page of this KlassikAkzente 03/2011, "Preview of January".
It refers to Debussy's "Pour le piano" and Szymanowski's sonata No.1 in C minor, the pieces that Blechacz played in his recital in Berlin last month,
".....In early February you will be convinced by Blechacz with excitement in his eagerly anticipated new recital - by the playful brilliance and emotional depth of these two pieces - a true find of the secret (Geheimtipp)."
A German fan received the DG news magazine"Klassik" that included the same photo and article, therefore, I knew about the news and found this on-line Preview by KlassikAkzente.
(Many thanks to lotus-eater for the info.)
We still have about two months to go in waiting....

Kammermusiksaal: Pianist Rafał Blechacz feels at home
Oct. 19, 2011
With concise controlled movements, shaken out of the sleeves, the slender pianist can create his sound world and let it faint as equally quickly. The audience can only sit, amazed and celebrate him at the end.
Rafał Blechacz is a precious secret (Geheimtipp), as before, which incidentally explains the sparsely occupied Kammermusiksaal. Now, the young Pole is on a par with all the greats like Pollini, Argerich or Pogorelich. (The latter was, however, at the elite Warsaw Chopin Competition, which takes place only every five years, got no prize, which once led to a scandal.) Blechacz got the prize unanimously in 2005. Blechacz is from the countryside from a pianistic viewpoint, born in 1985 in Nakło and matured far away from the molding of big musicians. But Chopin's music is his nursery. With the four Mazurkas from Op 17, he feels quite at home and therefore can take liberties as the brilliant technician in accentuation. His own way of cool dissection of emotional states, he transfers to other composers. Bach's Partita No. 1 in B flat major gaining deep shades, Szymanowski's Sonata in C minor at ease, Debussy's Suite "for the piano" in abundance, unique nine variations by Mozart KV 264 - the unpretentious Blechacz has no manierismo, has some lengths.
