Many of us have been missing live concerts and recitals, so it’s wonderful that the Henley Festival is producing a digital show. Corinna talks to one of the headliners, Hao Zi Yoh about her journey to becoming a concert pianist - from playing the Carnegie Hall aged 12, moving from Malaysia to Germany at 14 and finding freedom to practice different pieces during lockdown in London.
Listen to Hao Zi perform the beautiful piano solo Liebesleid (Love’s Sorrow) recorded especially for Radio Gorgeous. This complex piece was originally written by Fritz Kreisler for violin but later transcribed by Sergei Rachmaninov.
The Henley Festival Digital Edition (also featuring Beverley Knight; Will Young; Joe Stilgoe and Rory Bremner) took place on July 12 2020.
