To play Chopin for the Polish artist is so near and so difficult at the same time. For Rafal Blechacz it goes without saying. He liberates Chopin from an ice palace. He can knock strong against the keyboard, but his Chopin is sensual and earthly, selfconfident, mysterious and touching. He has a lot to say without any gossipy. Rafal Blechacz never exposes his technique but revives the national musical holiness with light-heartedness and wise vitality.
