Described by The Telegraph as possessing 'the fearless exuberance of youth', the paper went on to praise his willingness to take risks - 'a readiness that brings spontaneous combustion to his playing... but he has sensitivity, too.'
The concert opens with Beethoven's Sonata Les Adieux, which conjures a potent tale of parting, absence and reunion. Liszt's transcription from Verdi's Il Trovatore succeeds in transferring grand opera to the piano. Epic poetic narratives are suggested in the two Chopin Ballades performed, and Schumann's Kreisleriana is a series of imaginative dreamscapes inspired by the tales of ETA Hoffmann.
