That was not good enough, said Ivry. We’d better play it againmain
At an April 2012 concert for his 90th birthday in Brussels, Ivry Gitlis was unhappy with a performance of the Schumann piano quintet that he played with Martha Argerich, Mischa Maisky, Maxim Vengerov, Amihai Grosz.
At the end of the show, he demanded a repeat performance. No-one left the hall before midnight.
That was Ivry.
Also involved were students of the Musica Mundi music school where Ivry came to teach for many years.
