The Times had ample priase for this ‘mercurially light-fingered account of Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No.1 by Bertrand Chamayou’, which struck the perfect balance between the work’s bravura and tenderness. The pianist was accompanied by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and maestro Thomas Søndergård.
