Haochen Zhang in concert

leave a comment »

My friend Matt scored free tickets for a performance by Haochen Zhang on piano at the GBPAC last Sunday. We were in the third row, near dead center. Excellent seats. He performed pieces by Schumann and Beethoven during the first 45 minutes. The selections made me drowsy, until the “presto” coda woke me up. Lots of banging on the keys and frantic gestures. One of the stage lights way above seemed to be aimed right at me. Very annoying. The second half was a bit more interesting, with pieces by Chopin, Debussy and Prokofiev. A larger crowd than the string quartet last month.
