I think the Charles R___ Piano Concerto is the most fabulous piece of music ever written. Especially the First Movement in D minor. This work, however, can only be fully appreciated when R___, the young genius, is playing the piano himself. The thrill of seeing the wedge-headed youngster hunched over the piano, banging on the keys, is like none other. R___ cannot read music, he just improvises. Says the genius: “Iaaa laaak theaaa blaaaak keeeees betah thaaan theaaaa what onesa.”
