Ken Lam draws passionate playing from Hong Kong Sinfonietta in works by Barber, Stravinsky, Prokofiev and contemporary composer Anna Clyne

  • Through four pieces of music composed in the past 100 years, Ken Lam and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta produced playing of passion, precision and power when needed
  • Samuel Barber’s one-movement symphony was the highlight and Stravinsky’s Octet a delight; violinist Luka Faulisi had little to say in Prokofiev’s Concerto No 1
