REVIEW: Maxim Rysanov Viola Recital

City Hall Concert Hall, Thursday September 20

Co-presented by Premiere Performances and Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Hong Kong welcomed Ukrainian vilolist Maxim Rysanov.

The dilemma of original repertoire for viola is a long-standing one. Indeed, it is in short supply, and despite the instrument’s irresistible allure, which has attracted the likes of Eugène Ysaÿe, David Oistrakh, Yehudi Menuhin and Pinchas Zukerman to publicly perform or record on the alto, transcriptions are a regular feature of a violist’s programme.
