    1. I thought you might like it, Claude.
      A few more Saturday night sessions for you are scheduled.

    2. Thank you, Sean. I also enjoyed the previous Saturday very much. But I didn't understand how Rubinstein could play Chopin so movingly, and not show one speck of emotion on his face. It seems to be all in his fingers. I admit that some musicians are much too expressive. Hélène Grimaud was perfect. She was totally united to Brahms while still remaining Hélène. And the orchestra was splendid!

    3. Ha ha, Rubinstein's poker face; as if he was performing this in Las Vegas, eh?
