Best wishes for his success in Beethoven month


Although it can be hidden behind a mountain of enthusiastic praises of his latest album Debussy Szymanowski, Blechacz's remarkable performances of Bach: Partita No.3 and Beethoven: sonata No.7 in D major op10-3 that he's given in recitals earlier this year should be remembered. I've been overwhelmingly impressed by the deep insight and beautiful rendition of the 2nd movement of the Beethoven in particular, and agree with the review by Frank Armbruster for Stuttgarter Zeitung who wrote that "in Beethoven's Sonata No. 7 in D major, Op 10/3, it is above all in the Largo e mesto, where Blechacz’s singular talent is obvious".

If I can find time, I would like to pick up reviews with evaluations of Bach and Beethoven that Blechacz performed in March/April period.

Rafał Blechacz will play Beethoven's concertos this month in several venues in Europe.
