_christylynn_ and i went to see Vitalij's nearly sold out Chopin concert on Sunday. It was a mind boggling collection of notes, these mad runs up and down the keyboard for an hour and a half. incredible. Vitalij's publicist was there and gave me an advance copy of the U.S. release of the CD (and a copy of the poster) which has the extra toccata by Fillipenko which is just ... yikes. amazing. He played it for one of his encores and it's so much more impressive live than any recording I've ever heard. I can't believe someone's fingers can move so fast.
