Blog #70. Astana Piano Passion Finale
May 2 2015
Bravo, Astana! Bravo the unique team, that organized with great enthusiasm the Competition this year. I’d like to thank Imangali Tasmagambetov for this idea and for his constant support for Astana Piano Passion. This Competition turns out to be a musical fairy tale for unique Kazakh hospitality, kindness and heartfulness. There are no more places in the world with such a wonderful atmosphere, healthy approach to competition and a good attitude. These facts affect people all over the world: unbelievable quantity of viewing on official web-site justifies it.
The Competition is over, yesterday I was performing three concerts of P. I. Tchaikovsky in a row with maestro Gergiev in St. Petersburg , but emotions, evoked by Astana Piano Passion, still overwhelm me. We have a new “team”, new members of our big united family, and it’s priceless. I am looking forward to the forth Competition. We invite everybody to Astana in 2017.
