Bells and decibels: Behzod Abduraimov at Wigmore Hall

Schubert/Liszt/Mussorgsky: Behzod Abduraimov ***

Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov is one of today’s young tigers of the piano, celebrated for tearing up the keyboard in ferociously difficult Prokofiev and Rachmaninov concertos. In this solo recital at Wigmore Hall, his claws were certainly evident in an often thrilling assault on Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, but he also demonstrated a more tender side in velvet-pawed Schubert.
