She took it in great stride.

That WAS great fun to watch, thanks!
You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.

I wonder. She's billed as Brazilian, but there may be some Danish blood in her....

She was so relaxed throughout. Quite something!
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

Mrs. Rodrigues lives in Antwerp/Belgium.
http://www.elianerodrigues.com/en/biography-in-brief-10.htm


Eliane Rodrigues was born in Rio de Janeiro. The fact that she was a child prodigy was noticeable at a very early age: she started composing at three, played her first recital at five and performed with orchestra at the ages of six and seven.
From that moment on, she won prizes at numerous regional and national competitions, going on to win the special prize at the Van Cliburn Competition in the USA when she was just 18. She came in fifth place at the 1983 Queen Elisabeth Competition.

Since then, she has performed in major cities, including: Antwerp, Brussels, The Hague, Moscow, New York, Rio de Janeiro, St. Petersburg, Volgograd and Zurich. For over 20 years, she has been invited to De Doelen in Rotterdam to perform a Chopin recital on Boxing Day.

1998 was a critical year for Rodrigues: she was the key figure in the Swiss Música Romântica festival, at which she not only performes solo, but conducted at and composed for as well.

In addition to this, she has been a lecturer at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp for over 20 years.

She produced over 25 CDs of both live concerts and studio albums. In 2002, she recorded five Prokofiev concertos on CD, among other accomplishments.

She most recently recorded all eight of Beethoven's concertos in St. Petersburg ( incl. the Triple concerto, the pianoversion of the violinconcerto and the piano/chorus fantasy).

Before this thread vanishes (i.e., goes to page two), I'd just like to stamp my little feet once or twice because no one noticed (or at least remarked upon) my nice little Victor Borge reference.

How soon we forget....

And thanks for the Victor Borge reminder:

De nada.

I met him backstage at the War Memorial Opera House in Sacramento. I was wandering around where I shouldn't have been, looking for the toilet. (I had performed there myself with my high school band, so I was just going for the toilet I knew about.)

Anyway, there he was. So we said "Hi" to each other; that was about it.

It was my first experience with the lack of correlation between physical size and presence.

I should add that I agree that Eliane Rodriques is an inspiring and lovely artist. You know, to stay on topic. Plus, she's an inspiring and lovely artist, so it's only fair to mention that.
