    I just heard the Baltimore version of their recital, and it was great, I agree. But a lot of the audience was there to hear Kremer and they left wondering, “wow, who was that Russian pianist?” So, I have to disagree with your last point — in this day and age of overhyped prodigies, a young pianist can really benefit from a “nod” from a legend such as Kremer. It’s easy enough for us trained keyboardists to hear what Trifonov is doing, but for more casual listeners, it may be helpful to have the stamp of approval from an authority figure.
