Thanks for the spice, stevie.

He'll be playing Bach's French Suite #5, Brahms' Op. 119, Schubert D. 960 sonata, and Liszt's B-A-C-H.

Just a follow-up on the performance for those who missed - The show was excellent, with the usual expected technical feats and a wide range of tone color.  I think Hamelin has been misconstrued in the past as a dry performer, but I must tell these people to go to a recent live performance of him. 
His encores included a song of Chopin transcribed by Liszt (I'm guessing it was 'My Joys') and a hilarious rendition of the Nokia ring tone, which he had dedicated to a 'special person in the audience, whoever he or she might be' (referring to the person whose cell went off during his Schubert).  Anyone else able to make it?

Andrei did something similar?  I don't think the sketch itself was an improv, but I doubt he planned to play it before the concert.  Either that or he's so used to cell phones going off that he is able to count on it.   :-\
