Review: Norrköpings Tidningar

Review, Norrköpings Tidningar: Andreas Boyde performs Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Stravinsky’s Piano Concerto with Norrköpings Symfoniorkester and Michael Francis.

The German pianist Andreas Boyde was the dynamic soloist of the Rhapsody. He has a personal sensitivity for sound and puts great focus on dramatic expression. When he played Igor Stravinsky’s Concerto for Piano and Winds, he showed a completely different side. I liked in particular the contrasting slow movement with its meditative character, performed with great dynamic sensitivity.
