A most welcome return for Viv McLean, this time as a soloist. Recent concerto highlights include his Mozart K. 467 with the English Chamber Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall, Grieg with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Barbican, a tour of the USA with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performing Gershwin; Rachmaninov's 3rd Concerto with the RPO in Cambridge, Rachmaninov's 2nd Concerto with the London Concert Orchestra at the Barbican; and Beethoven's Emperor Concerto with the Philharmonia at the Royal Festival Hall.
"The listener was struck by the sustained level of technical mastery. Viv McLean performed with his mind as well as his hands"
