Sarah Chang plays Barber at the Cadogan Hall

I’m always grumbling that Sarah Chang never plays anything apart from Bruch which she comes to London. And when she plays something more interesting, there’s often a clash with another compelling Korean cultural event. Earlier this year I couldn’t go to her Shostakovich because E J-yong needed to be interviewed. So I wonder what will […]

Maestro Seigerstam eased himself onto the platform looking like a cross between Brahms and a benign troll, long white beard resting on a generous stomach, long white hair reaching down the back of his tailcoat.

What a shame. Whenever Sarah Chang comes to London she seems to play Bruch. But this month, she’s playing Shostakovich 1 with Valery Gergiev and the LSO. Great programme. But it clashes with the E J-yong Q&A at the Apollo Piccadilly. Gergiev’s Pathétique, and the prospect of how he might approach the Sea Interludes, almost […]

Is it my imagination, or whenever you see a programme with a Korean violinist in London, more than half the time it’s the Bruch they’re playing?
