October 20, 2022 at 09:27 PM · This past weekend, I went to see Paul Huang play Vivaldi's 4 Seasons with the Colorado Symphony, and I really liked his playing. He was able to play with a really beautiful sound throughout, and played really collaboratively and sensitively with the orchestra and the different section leaders with whom he had a dialogue at various times, and even though his performance emphasized lyricism and a beautiful, singing tone, he was able to convey the emotional and programmatic aspects as well, which is a tough needle to thread.
The last time I heard the 4 Seasons, the soloist didn't play in a very singing way and leaned totally into the programmatic elements, which ended up making for a bunch of cool sound effects, but not a particularly gratifying interpretation.
I also attended Andras Schiff playing one of my all-time concert experiences, but I'll leave that to the imagination.
