Markus Groh

Has anyone heard or heard of Markus Groh?  And if so, do you have any opinions on him?  I'm thinking about buying tickets to a concert he's playing this fall - the Brahms concerto.  It's with the symphony orchestra, and I'd have to drive a couple hours, and I can't afford many concerts.  If he's worth it, maybe I'll go, but I might save the money and wait until Jon Nakamatsu comes later in the spring with a Mozart concerto.
When you earnestly believe you can compensate for a lack of skill by doubling your efforts, there's no end to what you can't do.

He's very good.  I saw him play the Liszt Piano Concerto in E flat with the Charlotte Symphony and afterwards I got to shake his hand :)
