Stephanie McCallum talks Gavrylyuk

The piano virtuoso Alexander Gavrylyuk gave a concert in Sydney last Saturday as part of the Sydney Symphony piano series which is held in Sydney's Angel Place, a hall with much better acoustics than the Sydney Opera House concert hall (which is why I bought a subscription to this series).
Stephanie McCallum talks music
The pre-concert talk was given by pianist Stephanie McCallum. It was such a pleasure to hear the thoughts of a pianist on the program we were about to hear. Some of the excerpts she played were her own recording.

Alexander Gavrylyuk earned wild applause for his virtuosic performance, perhaps partly because we understood better what we were listening too?
