March 2, 2016 at 04:50 PM · Out of several reviews I found after seeing Hadelich's Tchaikovsky with LPO, I am surprised this is the one that got posted! I quite enjoyed the concert, myself, and disagree with critics with too many preconceived expectations, especially after reading his thoughts about the Tchaikovsky concerto on his website.

Other reviews I had seen on this performance- there may be more:
