Live reviews: Andrea Lam with Canberra Symphony Orchestra

Live reviews of Andrea Lam‘s performance of Rachmaninov Piano Concerto no.1 in Canberra Symphony Orchestra’s ACTEW AGL Llewellyn Series, conducted by Nicholas Milton:

“What a glorious pianist Andrea Lam is! Economical in style, sensitive in her interpretations and masterful in her understanding of the repertoire, Lam brought the audience inside the under-appreciated beauties of Sergei Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.1 in F Sharp.
….the composer’s sophisticated orchestration maintains conversation with the piano, leaping from tumult to idyllic, filmic passages within the whole, and Lam navigated the contrasting mood-changes skilfully… Lam’s encore, Chopin’s Nocturne in C minor, Op.posth., was exquisitely played with a touch that recreated the descriptions of Chopin’s unique delicacy.”

“… a sparkling and very accurate technique… she played the second movement with sensitivity, beauty and grace.”
