No, no. Definitely not this way,
This review is from: Tchaikovsky / Mendelssohn: First Piano Concertos (Audio CD)
This is the first performance from Lang Lang that I hear and I'm sorry to say that it will be the last.
The Tchaikovsky concerto sounds to me as if the performer had some problem with the piano. For the lively passages he seems to be pounding the keys instead of playing them (if you know what I mean) and for the solo parts at some point he displays slowness near boredom instead of subtle playing.
I will listen to his Mendelssohn some other day... when my ears have recovered from this experience.
