Review |
Chinese pianist Lang Lang entertains in Beethoven concerto with HK Phil, showing injury that sidelined him is no longer a factor

  • Elegant, quirky, and even magical, pianist’s playing had much to admire about it, even if he did contrive to catch Hong Kong Philharmonic players off guard
  • Soloist’s performance of composer’s second concerto was the centrepiece of an all-Beethoven evening in which orchestra excelled under Jaap van Zweden’s baton
