  • Vermont Symphony Orchestra with Stephen Hough playing Rachmaninoff鈥檚 Piano Concerto #3. I was so tired after that from the exhilaration as well as from trying to follow Hough鈥檚 hands as I was 3 rows away from him.

    Lucky all of you who can see such amazing musicians.  I live in Santiago Chile far away of big concert venues.  My last concert last month Verdi's Requiem with Chile Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by their new musical director Roberto Rizzi

  • Maurizio Pollini鈥檚 80th birthday recital at the Southbank London. Schumann and Beethoven, just fantastic!

    Incidentally, I remember seeing Benjamin Grosvenor play when he was about 10years old and his feet barely reached the ground when he sat on the stool. He was so good even then!

      Angela Fogg I love Benjamin鈥檚 playing!  Before COVID he was in Atlanta and got stuck in town for a few days due to weather-related flight cancellations.  Since one of my friends happens to be a close friend of Benjamin鈥檚, Benjamin spent a whole day practicing on my Bosendorfer!

       

      He brought his entire suitcase 馃С and asked me if he could do his laundry. 馃槀 鈥nd he ALMOST put his new cashmere sweater in the wash. ( His mom got it for him for Xmas and he had no idea you couldn鈥檛 just wash cashmere!).

    • Gail Starr Wonderful! When you play like he does I think you can forgive the lack of laundry knowledge!

      Angela Fogg He was such a pleasure to have, and it was sort of cute that he didn鈥檛 know how to do laundry.  


      I actually also got him a new pair of jeans 馃憱 because he didn鈥檛 have time to shop while he was on your, and he happened to be the exact same size as my college-aged son and I had JUST got a new pair for my kid.

       

      Benjamin鈥檚 girlfriend texted me later to thank me! 馃槀

  • My last live concert was on Apr 1st and included Lise de la Salle performing the Ravel Piano concerto in G major in Dublin, IE. It was really great. Concert also included works by Gershwin, Bernstein and Milhaud and had an American and jazzy motif across all works!

  • Hello Dominic, my last two LIVE concerts have been quite memorable.  On May 1st, I saw the Houston Symphony perform Mahler鈥檚 2nd with Andres Orozco-Estrada conducting his last concert in Houston as Music Director. 馃檨 

    Tonight I had the privilege of attending your LIVE recital in Fort Worth, Texas!  I was the one afterwards who told you I came in from Houston to see you perform.  I loved how you gave the background to every single piece.  I have learned so much from your classes on Tonebase, and now your live performance.  Your rendition of Pictures at an Exhibition was brilliant!  The Erwin Schullhoff Suite No. 3 for the Left Hand was amazing!  You are a special performer.  I wish you all the best at your upcoming concerts!

      Derek McConville Stephen Mendoza Wow! That is wonderful to hear! I have seen Dominic perform the Pictures at an Exhibition, too! Brilliant indeed! And, yes, the way Dominic performs the Schulhoff Suite No. 3 for the Left Hand is remarkable! Superb!

       

      What FUN that you were able to attend!

      Stephen Mendoza That sounded amazing!  Dominic was in FL about six months ago, but too many hours away from where I live for me to go.

    Hello all, 

    The last live concert I attended was all 5 Prokofiev Piano Concertos performed by Daniil Trifonov, Sergei Babayan and Alexei Volodin at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of the BBC Proms season. It was conducted by Valery Gergiev. A truly amazing evening!
