Tru , da Pogo returned to Poland , for a very closed recital in Warsaw after 26 years of break. I stood there for 4,30 hours in the cold and tried all my best to get there , da programme wuz :
Beethoven Fur Elise
i n t e r m i s s i o n
Scriabin Zonata 4
Rachmaninov Zon 2 (revised)
in order of da polizh way ov unduhstanding , da whole recital would be juzt az inappropriate az da comp zhit (TRU DA POLO ZOMETIMEZ HAFF HAHAHA VIEWZ). BUT , the recital was so fuckin magical , so fuckin aspiratin , plus da Pogo wuz randomly fuckin sad like if he wuz suffering like hell. da bald …
he refused any transmission in the radio or tv . For da first time from couple of years , all Warsaw gave standing ovation. ALL DA WARZAW !!! SHEEEYAT !!!
Da Pogo iz a down azz mofo.
I’m glad it wuz a success. Random bootleg on da way?
I attended a random POGO conc in Wiesbaden about 2 yearz ago.
It wuz one of da worzt concertz I’v been to (and I’ve been to hundreds) and a considerable wazte of money (60 Euro per ticket). I like non-ztandard interpretations, but he played so zl*w and diztorted dat I cud hardly recognize da piecez he wuz playing.
Glad to hear dat he left hiz crizis behind, though
well i wouldnt say he left his crisis behind. i already said his playing was not “good” … but what does “good” mean ??
I was one of the most anti-pogoers , even though i knew him in his best recs etc. while i’ve been to his concert first time in my life , and i felt so connected with him , with the music and i was hugely impressed and melancholised in a way …
PS. no bootleg , i took my minidisc and expensive mic but i didnt rec it since i heard he really asked not to record or anything as he wants this moment not to be relived or something … whatever
I"m sure the emotion of the moment must have been overwhelming in a way. I heard most of this program in nyc, however, and must say it was quite dreadful.
Is it true da Pogo offered da orgy piano lessons?
