Maybe Ligeti one day…
I wish I could promise to start blogging more regularly from now on but can’t just yet – still not enough time. But I’ve just stumbled into this item and posting it won’t require a whole lot of effort so why put it off?
A brand new interview with the pianist Piotr Anderszewski has been published on http://www.telegraph.co.uk today (probably in the printed version as well?). You can find the interview here. It’s quite short and rather superficial but Anderszewski has the reputation of a recluse and I don’t think interviews with him are very common. He does say some striking things, though. I especially like this part:
Sometimes when I’m practicing it feels as if the piano might actually eat me!
Two other tidbits:
sometimes the piano won’t sing enough. But that is also the secret of this instrument
I wish someone would invent a piano I could play lying down, I would be so happy!
Plus there’s the quote I’ve taken for the title – which I intend to treat as a promise!
Also from today, and on the same site – there’s a rave review of Anderszewski’s newest album (Piotr Anderszewski at Carnegie Hall, on Virgin).
