Like Father, Like Daughter

I had heard of Boris Berezovsky (pianist), born in 1969, who won the 1990 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. However, I did not know that he has an equally talented daughter, born in 1991, named Evelyne Berezovsky, also a pianist. We catch a glimpse of what each has to offer during rehearsals onstage in an outdoor theatre at La Roque D'Antheron in the Provence, France. These videos are an extraordinary opportunity to see the brilliance and wonderment that such talented musicians bring to their art and life. Listen and learn!

The notorious Manitoba native, Kenneth Leishman, organized a gold heist in 1966 that in today's value would have been worth more than 2 million $. The heist took place at the Winnipeg International Airport and consisted of loading gold bars from an airplane into a van, without being suspected until the gold shipment did not reach its expected destination.

A documentary about this daring petty thief was completed in 2005 and the link is below in the Glog feature.
