His performance of this Mozart piece is one of my favorites.  The performance by then 19 year-old (months before the 2005 Chopin Competition) is full of youthfulness and energy, and would inevitably brighten up your heart and mind if you listen to it at the beginning of the day.  I believe he is one of the most excellent interpreters of Mozart.

Archive of the show?  Please give it a try.  TVP is not viewable in Japan or US so I cannot verify it. (Aug. 29)

Somewhere in this blog, I wrote that Blechacz's new album "Chopin Polonaises" was recorded in Ludwigshafen, because Tower Records Japan had this venue on its website.  But this info turned out to be wrong.  The new album was recorded in  Friedrich-Ebert-Halle, Hamburg, as has been described by Deutsche Grammophon website.  Sorry for the misinfo.!

It's not news about RB, but I learned from reviews in UK that Antoni Wit finished his last concert as an artistic director of Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra during this year's Proms.
RB's last concert with Wit was in Prague in May last year when RB played Beethoven's 4th concerto, if I remember correctly.
