Review |
With energetic Beethoven and dramatic Brahms, pianist and cellist in Hong Kong duo recital show their chemistry

  • Alexander Krichel played the piano parts with sensitivity and Maximilian Hornung the cello parts with daring and panache in sonatas by Beethoven and Brahms
  • Krichel showed control but a narrow colour range in Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition; Hornung couldn’t lend shape to a Dieter Ammann contemporary work
