New light on an old friend: Mao Fujita plays Tchaikovsky with the RLPO

His interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 in B flat minor was full of life and energy, turning from thoughtful and reflective to outgoing and exuberant in a moment. His virtuosity was not mere show; his dazzling skill always served to express the meaning of the music and revealed many subtleties of the score that can be lost in more bombastic performances.
