Oh, I LOVE that review, and what a program.
I have tickets to see M-AH with SFS in a couple of months, and got to hear him a lot last year at Ojai North. He is somewhere beyond awesome and not just as a technician. I do not expect to hear a better pianist in my lifetime.

Thanks, Lisa. It was a fun piece to write - almost as fun as the concert itself.
So glad you like him, and beyond his technical skills (which are formidable). He gets bashed now and then for being "all technique," "icy" - I'm sure you've read others - and I just don't agree.
I see you're hearing him in Ravel and Gershwin - would love to find out what he has to say about both of those!
