The thought of a great weekend ahead!
Lang Lang's concert at the RAH tonight ....
So you're going to get your fix of Albeniz then (Iberia Bk1)?
My erstwhile colleague and Head of Music at the school in which I work, thought he'd have a go at one of the Fellowship Diplomas and decided that if he prepared for it he'd offer Schumann's G minor Sonata and .... Prokofiev's Sonata No.7 (on tonight's programme).
The third movement especially, goes at some lick and will probably allow Lang Lang to look somewhat manic as he plays it.
When my colleague's wife heard him play through that last movement she said, "Oh, you're not going to be playing that
everyday for nine months, are you!?"
He never sat that diploma!
Don't let that anecdote put you off though; I'm sure LL's rendition will be exciting, to say the least.
