THEY REALLY DON’T MAKE FUN LIKE THIS ANY MORE…..
“Through the entire recital (which ran to more than three hours) David Gray played entirely from memory. This left the art deco stencilled wooden ‘Christie’ lettering on the music stand visible, and reinforced the brilliance of Gray’s skill in recalling such complex compositions by heart – knowing when to tap the keys on any one of the three tiers of manuals (keyboards), when to press the associated buttons and pistons or flick the stop tabs to change the sounds, all while pedalling like a duckling.”
“David Gray’s performance was an extraordinary feat of endurance, memory and dexterity – and utterly exhilarating. After witnessing such skill, tapping at a computer keyboard and space bar makes me feel like a pre-schooler trying to solve a round-hole/square-block puzzle.”
“The world needs more humans like the amenable, intelligent David Gray. And the world needs more instruments like the Christie.” Click here to read the full classikON review by Simon Hirtzel
