A well-balanced programme drew a large crowd to Wigmore Hall for a diet of high fibre Beethoven, crunchy Bartók and, joined by young Russian pianist Anna Vinnitskaya, Schumann’s delicious Piano Quintet.
Schumann and Wagner were twinned in a programme focusing on works written in 1850 with impressvie results.
The pianist’s ability to easily bring out the melodic qualities, the shifts in mood and color from amidst the swirling pyrotechnics is remarkable for someone so young.
Continuing the 'German Romantic' series, Steffens and the Philharmonia gave an indulgent performance, culminating in a thrilling account of Brahms' Third.
