Rafał Blechacz - another wonderful Beethoven @Teatro alla Scala, Milan

On May 21, Rafał Blechacz performed Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 at Teatro alla Scala, Milan, with Filarmonica della Scala, directed by Fabio Luisi.
Luisi's interpretation was delicate and the piano sounded and extended beautifully to the vast space of La Scala.  To respond to unending applause, Blechacz gave two encores: Chopin's Mazurka in A major op41 and in E minor op.17.

“It was his La Scala debut and a very, very successful one. Dress rehearsal in the morning drew so many people that the house was full.  Both Luisi and Rafał were happy to play together”

The concert was the fourth and final installment of series of concerts of this spring held in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of Filarmonica della Scala and live-distributed to hundreds of cinemas across entire Europe, including Poland, Russia and Nordic countries and Americas.

I would like to extend my sincere condolence and deepest sympathy to those affected by the big earthquake that hit northern Italy early in the morning, May 20.
