  1. What a wonderful performance! Thanks for your information Akiko. :)
    BTW, why I cannot see your blog of Japanese version anymore?

    1. Good to know that there is someone using the info of this post, enjoying the music.
      I’ve been saddled with plagiarism cases in my country for the past years, without which I could have spread his news better.

  2. Hi Akiko,
    RB succeed in balancing the Wiener Klassik and Beethoven's own very well. The wealth of colour and sonority were also remarkable.
    The sound of the recording was excellent, wasn't it?

    1. I’ve not yet listened to the performance. But I experienced the sound of Wiener Symphoniker (playing Beethoven, Brahms) live a few years ago, and I expect it to fit well with Blechacz’s exhilarating, masculine approach when it comes to Beethoven. Looking forward to listening.

    2. This concert is archieved until next sunday.
      Click on So(Sunday).

  3. I became RB's fan recently. I love his interpretation very much!
    A little sad is that...He is not famous in my country... :(
    But I am very happy after I found this blog. :P

    Thank you for your replay and efforts, Akiko :)
