Q: The climax of your appearances in Nantes was the Third Concerto of Rachmaninoff. What is your assessment of this devilishly difficult work?
I do not consider this concerto to be the most difficult, although learning it was actually quite difficult. But in my case, it happened that I worked at it like it was an emergency, and I learned it in three days. Tatiana Nikolayeva had said to me that there was a possibility of playing it in Scotland in three weeks. I had never played this concerto before, and when I learned it in three days, she did not believe me. And then afterwards it was revealed to me that the planned performance would not be held.
