Even another woman in a nice dress playing…actually pretty good.
Maybe she could have given us a little more madness, insanity even. There is some, but I sometimes feel that some of the darker pieces of Rachmaninov, for instance the études-tableaux, are played like his second concerto, just a little more of the same, so to speak. There are some things in this concerto and similar pieces that calls for something else than a broken heart, or maybe a heart that is broken to the point of insanity. I’m not sure exactly what.
