Review |
Pianist Alexander Ullman’s Rach 3 with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta skilfully brings out the concerto’s emotional depth

  • Young British soloist shows technical mastery of the difficult concerto and conveys well its emotional range, but Hong Kong Sinfonietta lets him down somewhat
  • They excelled in Arvo Pärt’s tribute to Benjamin Britten, but their rendition of Brahms’ Symphony No 4 under guest conductor Ola Rudner lacked sophistication
