Konzerthaus: Pianist erleidet Schlaganfall 

Der Pianist Cyprien Katsaris hat bei seinem Auftritt im Kleinen Saal des Konzerthauses am Montagabend einen Schlaganfall erlitten. Das Konzert musste abgebrochen werden, Katsaris wurde umgehend in die Charité gebracht. „Kurz vor Ende meiner Bearbeitung von Liszts 2. Klavierkonzert spürte ich plötzlich meine linke Hand nicht mehr“, erklärte der 61-jährige Pianist vom Krankenbett aus. Der Nationalfeiertag sowie die EU-Ratspräsidentschaft der Republik Zypern führten den international gefeierten Katsaris mit einem Überraschungsprogramm in das Konzerthaus. (Der Tagesspiegel)

Just in: Eminent pianist rushed to hospital in Berlin
October 2, 2012 By Norman Lebrecht / Slipped Disc

We’ve received a report that the Greek pianist Cyprien Katsaris broke down during a recital in Berlin on Monday night and was rushed to hospital. No further details are known. We wish him a swift recovery. Please let us know if you have details of his recovery.

Here’s the report from a Slipped Disc reader:
I attended a concert of pianist Cyprien Katsaris in the Berlin Konzerthaus last night. Towards the end of the concert, as Katsaris was playing his own arrangement of Liszt’s Concerto no. 2 for solo piano, he stopped playing, and announced that he lost sensation in his left arm, and asked the audience if there is a doctor in the audience. After a very short pause of silence from the audience, he asked again if there is a doctor in the audience saying “this has never happened to me”. At this point a few people went on stage and evacuated him backstage, and later on to the hospital. The impression was that he was having a stroke on stage, and it got us worried about his condition.

The news of Cyprien Katsaris is that he is recovering in hospital in Berlin. Fears that he suffered a stroke or heart attack may be exaggerated.
After being taken ill in the middle of his own arrangement of a Liszt concerto, Katsaris is reported to have said: ’Es war eines meiner besten Konzerte, etwas Besonderes passierte, ich habe mit meiner ganzen Seele für Griechenland und Zypern gespielt. (This was one of my best concerts. Something special happened. I played with my entire soul for Greece and Cyprus.)’
