The soloist in Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto was the outstanding young American pianist, Andrew von Oeyen, who dazzled the Saturday night audience with his strength and accuracy…[the piece] found in Von Oeyen a large-handed soloist with the incredible stamina to play the 40-minute piece which gives the pianist almost no rest at all. Von Oeyen is a force to be reckoned with – his power dominated the orchestra at all times – but the dominance was tasteful and technically impeccable – no wrong notes that I heard… The audience gave the soloist a well-deserved standing ovation.
