Han-Na Chang has been called `a diminutive, dynamic firebrand’ (The Guardian) with `an extraordinary sense of fearless adventure’ (The Times).
The timeless, towering chords of Grieg’s Piano Concerto lead into the turbulence of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. In his own words, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony marked his `complete resignation before Fate’. `Fate’ winds unrelenting through each movement, interrupting a love song, cutting in on a waltz and finally taking on the form of a march into the blazing finale.
This concert is presented in partnership with the Korean Cultural Centre UK
