"Tonight in Luxembourg Rafał Blechacz played Beethoven's No. 2 at Philharmonie Luxembourg, Grand Auditorium with Tonhalle Orchester Zurich under Michał Nesterowicz. Beatiful interpretation again! When he finished a big ovation erupted and loud shouting of "Bravo! Bravo!" It was a very enthusiastic reception by the Luxembourg audience. Rafal responded with two encores, both Chopin's: Waltz, and Preludium No. 7".
** Sincere appreciation for always delivering good news of Rafał's achievements so quickly ♡
Also my heartfelt thanks go to Philharmonie Luxemboug for sharing with us the wonderful photo of Rafał Blechacz with Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich!
I remember he played Preludium 7 as the last of three encores at his recital in Yokohama in 2010, his last concert in Japan. It was a very touching moment; warm atmosphere in the hall. Many had tears.
