Travel in Time and Meet Sergei Rachmaninoff
In Piano Street’s recent interview with Valentina Lisitsa she told us about the blind test her teacher gave the piano class at the music school in her youth. Three recordings were presented; Richter, Rubinstein and Rachmaninoff. Who was hammering out loud and who was the gentle, delicate player?

Valentina Lisitsa on Searching for the Rachmaninoff Affinity
When Valentina Lisitsa came to Stockholm to play Rachmaninoff’s third piano concerto, it was a welcome fact not only for all her fans but also for anybody well aware of the enormous challenge this concerto means for any performer. In 2013 Lisitsa released her Complete Rachmaninoff Concertos (including the Paganini Rhapsody) on Decca and therefor this was a rare chance for Piano Street’s Patrick Jovell not to talk to her about YouTube but… Sergei Rachmaninoff.

Now York to Beijing
Let me tell you Astoria 'bout Steinway. The venerable Queens piano makers may have moved to Manhattan, but their biggest market outside the Five Boroughs is China. With the explosion of interest in the keyboard in China across all demographics, they need pianos, pianos, pianos. Read more at nytimes.com
Kun-woo Paik's Quirky Musical Thoughts
He seems to be the antithesis of the driven concert pianist. Although he performs more than 50 concerts a year, he still takes time to take requests for a recital. He wants to enjoy music instead of conquer it. Read more at donga.com
Cho Scores One for Korea

Schools are Being About Transformations
The President of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, David Stull sees 'a professional development curriculum, that should go far beyond just teaching students how to get a job with an orchestra.

Tragedy to Triumph
Focal dystonia drove Leon Fleisher to the depths of an abyss darker than any soul ever might dare to imagine. At first, redirection into teaching and conducting and then, later, Botox injections brought him happiness. The toxin injections actually allowed him to play an extensive tour at the age of 77. Through it all, he always maintained one of the most solid senses of rhythm and pulse of any pianist. Read more at interlude.hk
Engagingly Weird
If you go to a Nils Frahm performance, you would be as likely to see him holding a hair dryer tuned to E-flat as see him sitting at the piano. Frahm juxtaposes a powerful keyboard technique with a unique vision of performance that might, on occasion, involve wielding a toilet brush. Read more at musicomh.com

When one asks audiophiles what the 20 greatest piano concertos are, one is likely to get a collection of lists that seem almost identical to each other. What are the criteria, though?
