Entering Soloist's room 309 at the Warsaw Philharmonic I saw this poster, from 1965, announcing Finals of the VII International F. Chopin Competition. It made me feeling nostalgia. It was not that far ago. Yet, 50+ years have passed, and I did not forget any of these Artists, especially Martha Argerich who, despite of me being a kid and later on a teenager, quickly became my Idol, whom I loved with my platonic love, whom I adored as a pianist and as a woman.  Being here tonight I feel the energy, the good energy of all the Artists who performed here over so many years. I can sense their presence everywhere...

I feel privileged to have a chance to return to perform Saint-Saëns Second Piano Concerto in G minor on February 26th and 27th of 2016 with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Patrick Fourniller. These are the last two concerts of the series of performances I gave to celebrate 30 years of my career.
