Just listening to the repeat of this on TTN, specifically the First Piano Concerto.... Tremendous performance, I was gripped - not knowing who was playing till I just looked it up.
Till then, I thought it must be somewhere in Eastern Europe in the depths of winter due to THE UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNT OF OBTRUSIVE COUGHING DURING THE SLOW MOVEMENT!!
What is it with these people? How can anyone cough repeatedly, loudly, uncovered, open-mouthed, during that music?!
Note to self: make sure Carstairs has serviced and oiled the Walther and silencer ready for this season
