Of the recent streamed performances from Wigmore Hall, Elisabeth Brauß’s lunchtime concert of Beethoven (Op. 10 No. 3), Mendelssohn (Variations sérieuses), and Prokofiev (Piano Sonata No. 2) really stood out for me — and not just for me. Astonishingly good playing, without bombast or exaggeration. One of the BBC New Generation Artists showcased over a weekend, she is surely on the threshold of a stellar career. To be watched and re-watched. Enjoy!
