Cleveland Orchestra muses run to London and Paris on charming weekend at Blossom
By Mark Satola
"In the midst of a weekend of 20th century Anglo-Francophilia, Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 in C, with young pianist David Fung, was something of an odd man out, with its Rococo sheen and classical poise. Fung, making his Cleveland Orchestra debut, proved an agile and alert interpreter of Mozart's crystalline note-spinning. His sensitive reading of the famous Andante was the highlight of the concerto, and Francis directed the accompaniment, quite innovative for its time, with a fine ear for balance."
