Leon Fleisher plays Ravel Concerto for Left Hand with La Phil at Hollywood Bowl 8/18/10

August 18, 2010

I could not miss this wonderful opportunity to hear Fleisher, especially Ravel Concerto for Left Hand! I went their dress rehearsal at Hollywood Bowl last Tuesday. I did not know that anyone can listen the dress rehearsal of LA Phil on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is a fantastic chance to hear great music in very relaxed situation without any $! Fleisher played with beautiful  tone, expression, phrasing, color—. It was just beautiful and elegant. I think he passed 80 years old, and it is  amazing! Once he sat down at the piano he played great, but he seemed having  difficulty walking around. He looked fragile—. It was inspiring.
