Whither Tom Strini*

The program began with Mozart's "Overture to 'Le Mozze [sic] di Figaro'" (The Marriage of Figaro), followed by the composer's "Concerto No. 27 in B-flat major for Piano and Orchestra," featuring pianist Jeremy Denk.
What are those, scare quotes? Strange newspaper style, that.

And how on Earth does the soloist play rubato "throughout" a piano concerto, particularly one of Mozart's, without precipitating a complete train wreck?

Also, this is confusing, also:
No cameras or cell phones are not allowed inside either.

* eta: AhaHere he is.
