Sarah Chang in Recital

Sarah ChangSarah Chang has been performing Danielpour, Beethoven and Prokofiev to mixed reviews. In her Daytona Beach recital Chang impressed reviewer Laura Stewart of the Daytona Beach News-Journal, who wrote that the Beethoven “Kreutzer” Sonata was “urgent and vital”, the Danielpour tone poem “River of Light” was “lucid and cerebral”, and the Prokofiev Second Violin Sonata was given the “dynamism that it demanded”. In his review for the Washington Post, however, Andrew Lindemann Malone thought the Danielpour felt “remote and impersonal” and the Kreutzer lacked “dramatic arc”, while the Prokofiev fared better. Paul Horsley reviewing Chang’s Kansas City recital for the Kansas City Star thought her performance of the Danielpour had a “limber sweetness” and the Prokofiev had “poise and drama”, but her Beethoven had “difficulty finding focus”.

On a completely different note, the Truth, Justice and Peace blog posted this nice video of Chang performing Massenet’s Meditation from Thais. Enjoy.
