Review – Mozart Piano Concerto in G major, K. 453, Queensland Orchestra, conductor: Muhai Tang
Andrea Lam was the concerto soloist and while her sound was arguably understated in terms of balance, her melting lyricism, filigree touch and spirited eloquence were compelling. She played with a firm purpose, attention to nuance and produced a spectrum of ravishing colour.
Warm liquid exchanges between ensemble and pianist effectively animated the performance. Lam's cadenzas were reflective and spacious and her performance was invested with as much emotional meaning as it was finely polished
