Vienna enchanted by Rafal Blechacz

RafaƂ Blechacz made his debut in Konzerthaus, proving a good impression of his first CD. He plays Polish Chopin without a French perfume. Whereas it is possible he allows the piano to sing a melody with a refined rubato keeping permanently a definite rhythm. His technique is perfect but not the goal for itself. Dynamic, from a delicate piano to fortissimo without rapid explosions. Each work is narrated clearly, but with a mystery inside. This makes this artist is so unique. The pianists who operform the music without a mystery are just the artisans.
