"Rafal gave an excellent recital although there were no encores. But his rapport with the public was excellent. Bach was brilliant and afterwards there were shouts of admiration. Beethoven startling, after Chopin's Ballade people started to rise while clapping thunderously. After Szymanowski was an enthusiasm and big standing ovation. The house was full".

"Szymanowski’s Sonata No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 8 was the most passionate — dare I say musical — playing of the night".
