The wrong concerto

Ever had a dream that you studied for the wrong test?    That's what happened with Maria Joao Pires. The expression on her face about 40 seconds into the piece is pretty funny, as she realizes that she needs to play a piece that she hadn't practiced.  Fortunately this was a rehearsal - I guess that's why you have rehearsals!

She finishes the piece anyway, playing from memory.  The Show must go on, indeed.
