Sarah Chang: Mendelssohn Violin Concerto Mvt.1 Part1

This is so much better than the one I saw last Saturday, with Yossif Ivanov on the violin and Kees Bakels helming the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. Something went wrong. The performance was uninspired at best. The funny thing is I have seen Kees Bakels and I have high opinions of him and Yossif played an encore piece that was really magnificent. Perhaps it’s just that the chemistry was just absent.

    The main reason was due to his violin, the projection not strong enough for a concert violin, although the tone is sweet.

    Some more the MPO doesn’t feel right to me on that day.
