“Hommage à Tschaikovsky” by György Kurtag played with gloves in the wonderful new Lugano concert hall as an encore after Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto…


  • RW2013 says:

    How would she like it if I did that to her violin?
    And as much as I love Kurtag, this is not one of his best works…

  • Tiredofitall says:

    Why does she always make me angry? If she were my child, I’d spank her.

  • Cyril Blair says:

    I suppose this is an artist with niche appeal. I can’t imagine paying to hear her. Nor do I understand why we are so fixated on Yuja Wang’s clothes but Kop’s unfinished ones get nary a mention.

  • Pianofortissimo says:

    Playing that encore with gloves is easy. I’d like to see her playing the Tchaikovsky concerto with gloves. 

  • Jeremy Atkin says:

    What were Kurtag’s people thinking of when they let him publish this puerile ‘work’.
    It diminishes his reputation and the joke wears off after about 6 seconds

  • Ravi Narasimhan says:

    Richter did it a lot better and with more flair.
