I went to Prom 32 the ‘piano day’ one, it was really cool, saw the Labeque sisters play Mozart concerto for 2 pianos K365, and I really enjoyed Saint-Saens Carnival of the animals.
Last Monday I went to Cadogan hall to hear some Chopin mazurkas, Mendelssohn’s Songs without words and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. I wasn’t so sure about having to hear the Stravinsky piece but I did enjoy it. I didn’t like it at first as I heard it on a documentary with Ashkenazy and Barenboim playing it, but it’s really cool, but is very hard core piano, some people cound handle it an walked out of the preformance.
Then I went to one near me yesterday, a really nice concert of piano duets.
I have all really booked tickets to see Maurizio Pollini and Kristian Zimmerman play Chopin next year at the Southbank Centre as its Chopin’s 200th birthday, can’t wait for that! I think I’m going to become a bit of a pianist twitcher!
Oh I saw two piano playing heavy weights these past 2 weeks! Saw Kristian Zimmerman and Maurizio Pollini play at the SouthBank, as it was Chopin’s 200th birthday. Zimmerman played Chopin’s Sonatas, ha-ha not sure what ones though, was cool anyway. Is it normal to stamp your feet when pedalling? That’s the first time I have seen that in a performance .
Pollini played the 24 preludes, ballade 1, 2 nocturnes and some etudes. And he did 3 encores! Bravisimo! Old guy, I’ll be seeing you in 2011 and there was no feat stamping...
And nextweek I have my teachers concert to go to, it will top the SouthBank’s ones no doubt!
btw Welcome to the piano page Abi!
