I hope that was just an off-night for Augustin Hadelich. I've seen him three times and he has always played really well, and I'm going to see him in three weeks. Maybe soloists tour too much?
Here's another review on the Hadelich performance by San Francisco Classical Voice. This one is by a violinist though, so maybe holds a little more water.
I was at the October 5th NSO concert and saw Arabella Steinbacher play the Brahms. She was fabulous. Her technique was flawless, and she was very expressive.
Hadelich has such gorgeous musicality, I'm inclined to think that he took a classical approach that the reviewers just did not understand.
