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”

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.
