This explains a lot of Erling Møldrup. I was not present at the Salt lake concert - but I would guess that he took the opportunity to play som pieces from the new Modern Danish Repertoire - which offcourse can be a challenge for a traditionally oriented audience. To me this shows the courage of a true musician. He always played the music he believed in - not the music the traditional audience wanted. Some of the very new rising stars on the scene could learn something from that attitude I think. ( I don't want to hear Asturias anymore if you know what i mean) ....David_Norton wrote:From a colleague of mine who attended the Salt Lake concert all those years ago:
"He was a gentleman in a sometimes ungentle world. I still remember his concert, which was a little tedious. But he wasn't; he was graciousness personified. I can give no higher compliment to anyone."
