Does anybody have news about this? I spoke to Zimerman a year ago in Tokyo, and I asked him if he will truly not return to America. His reply was that yes he will still play here, just not in big halls. Conservatories and universities. That does not make too much sense to me in the context of what he said in LA, unless he changes his mind. In any case, Zimerman used to keep an apartment in NYC. A manager here in Europe told me it has, since the LA event, burned down twice in mysterious circumstances, and that he says he cannot return to that home.
Has Zimerman in any case performed anywhere recently?
