  1. No exaggeration - it was indeed a standing ovation. He played the Waltz in A minor (op. 34 no. 2) and the Prelude in A major op. 28 as encores.

    At the CD signing afterwards, he personally confirmed that the recording of the Chopin polonaises is due in the autumn. (Unless he misheard my question.)

  2. Thanks for good news from SF and congrats for attending his recital ♫
