    Very inspiring to see Blechacz playing and talking :)

  2. Indeed, he has an aura that elevates listeners's state of mind.

    I read some Czech articles of the concert and knew that a mobile phone of someone in the audience persistently rang while the beautiful cadenza was played. I remember this happened in my country during Rafał's tour in 2010. The most sensitive, quiet moment at the ending of Chopin's Ballad No.2 was about to be tainted by a lingering phone ring. But the pianist was not disturbed and kept his concentration. The same on the side of most of the audience. I think it is important for a listener to keep attentive to the performer and his music, without swayed away by someone's insensitive attitude; probably it is a part of the attitude by "an active listener", who wants to have metaphysical experience from music.
