Behzod Abduraimov returns to Heinz Hall to play the Rachmaninoff Second Piano Concerto. He’s never seen David Lean’s Brief Encounter or The Seven Year Itch with Marilyn Monroe being wooed by the Rachmaninoff. But he has heard Eric Carmen sing the main melody. Behzod lives in Tashkent and Kansas City, has a jam packed schedule, and he took a few days off to visit Cancun. He’s played at the Hollywood Bowl three times and loves the Van Cliburn and Rachmaninoff recordings of the Second Concerto. Lots more in this interview with Jim Cunningham.
