I was just reading two music reviews of Yundi Li's Carnegie recital on Saturday and about Leon Fleisher's 80th birthday concert last Friday in Jordan Hall.
I was actually looking for a review of Leon Fleisher's concert because it was really interesting to me if someone (music critic) would mention anything about a few very surprising to me things that happened during the concert ( Leon Fleisher and Johnatan Biss got lost midway beacause of a really bad page-turn; and Leon Fleisher and Yefim Bronfman had to start the same piece twice after not being able to start it together ). But I couldn't find anything about it which is also interesting to me beacause at the same time I read a review of Yundi Li's recital which was not very nice (it sounds to me like the writer was looking for the smallest mistake, rushed passage, not "authentic" performance, etc...). These are the two reviews:

Do not take critics'opinions and attitudes seriously. They just see what they want to see. Yundi Li's performance was quite good, even though they say 'not authentic'
