Pianist Fabio Bidini re: Rachmaninoff Festival

 Van Cliburn competition medalist Fabio Bidini returns to Buffalo by critical acclaim to perform the rarely heard Piano Concerto No. 4 in G minor by Rachmaninoff, part of the first of a two-weekend Rachmaninoff Festival with JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra at Kleinhans.  In a conversation with WNED's Peter Hall, Bidini talks about the joys and challenges winning competitions as well as playing Rachmaninoff.  He has nice comments about the American music conservatory system and discusses recording Marcel Tyberg's Piano Sonata No. 2 which can be found on the BPO's Naxos CD featuring Tyberg's Symphony No. 2.
