      Imagine a piano duo concert with Argerich and Pollini!!!

      • Sue says:

        Actually, Pollini has lost his mojo of late. Take a look at him with the Berliners on the Digital Concert Hall. I heard him in Vienna in 2011 playing Schubert D960 and I was underwhelmed (to say the least of it).

  • Pedro says:

    I was in Lucerne yesterday and my historic moment there was a wonderful Dvorak programme by Weilerstein, Haitink and the COE. I didn’t manage to see the three genious of the photo among the audience. Pity for them if they weren’t there. The concert was exceptional.

      and did you buy tickets from 250 and 300 euro? absolutely absurd to pay these prizes for a concert with a overestimate conductor….sick sick music world

    Hey, how come everyone’s aging except me?
