Ingolf Wunder

Wunderchopin!

[...] Finally, it was Ingolf Wunder’s turn. He was the only pianist in the final who interacted with the orchestra: he led a dialogue, called on them to answer, pushed them up against the wall. And that unearthly piano of his, which quietened any flat note. You play the way your opponent lets you. Well then, play! Now we had piano, then rubato, and accelerando. We’re flowing, flowing! Romance. The Larghetto sounded nostalgic, sweet and bitter for a change. Finally, the finale – Rondo. Vivace.Now, you play to my dance. And if you don’t, the New York Philharmonic will, soon enough. Have I gone too far?
