Music Review: Rach 3

Date: 10 January 2015
Performers: Behzod Abduraimov (pianist),  Thomas Dausgaard (conductor), HK Philharmonic
Rating: *** (3 out of 5)

The HK Philharmonic is off to a good start in 2015 with a crowd-pleasing programme of romantic pieces. Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3, considered one of the most technically difficult piano works ever composed, took centre stage on January 9 and 10, enlisting Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard and 25-year-old Uzbekistani pianist Behzod Abduraimov. The latter won the grand prize at the London International Piano Competition at the age of 18 and is now an exclusive Decca artist.
