I recently visited a recital of Berezovsky, my favorite pianist as many of you already knew :) I posted the complete story of this unique and exciiting recital on "Pianists" Forum (http://pianosociety.com/new/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=5213)

I thought it would be the last chance to take photos with him, because I'm planing to finish my study here in this year and if I'm back to Seoul, it would be hardly possible to do that (even if he comes to Seoul, as he already did several times, certainly thousand people would stand in the line to get an autograph). So I brought a cd of him, a lacker pen for autographs and my camera.

These are the results :D

Hehe... groupie :D
Must be nice though to get a hug from your favorite pianist.
Gosh, his hands are almost as big as your head.
Very interesting him playing Hindemith. Extra brownie points for being more adventurous than the average Russian keyboard lion.

Yes, I'm a sort of that because I was too happy to sleep well that night :lol:

Oh really... I didn't realize that :shock: I should have asked him to unfold his hand to compare it with mine...

He got an "Echo" prize (a prestigious prize for classical recordings in Germany) on that cd in 2008 or so.

They're probably twice as big. That should help in playing Rachmaninov :)

I don't know; he may have difficulty playing the G in a simple Eb major triad if he has BIG fingers. :roll:
