DEFINITELY go! He's an amazing pianists, one of the best pianists alive at the moment IMO. His live Rach 3 has to be my favourite next to Horowitz's. His live Chopin op 25 are sublime too.

I have heard about his Rach 3 and I must admit Im quite excited about it. He will play Mozarts 23rd piano concerto a week after in the same city, but I think the tickets are sold out already.

Thank you for the reply.[/u]

The concert was great! An extraordinary experience for me, really ejoyable. The setlist was:

Shubert sonata in A.
Pause.
Chopin:
Fantasie-Impromptu and the three other impromptus
two nocturnes from op 62
polonaise-fantasie.

He was brought back alot times and played Etude op 25no2 and a mazurka as encore.

I absolutely LOVE that Schubert sonata.


Lots of Chopin, it seems.
