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.

Well i believe that the slow movement of the MoonLight Sonata is both easy and also difficult. Its easy as in the notes and everything, you might be able to even play it at first sight at the correct tempo and also fluently. But i believe its a very hard piece to sustain and to even make it sound "right" (well i cannot find the right word to describe what i mean over here). But it does gives many pianists an overall impression of it being a very simple piece, but how many of them can really play it well?

Regards,
