Benjamin Hochman’s November 2023 performance of Bartok Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra at Symphony Hall received critical acclaim:
Hochman led the work with refreshing calm, clarity, and friendliness: almost every note seemed to wear a smile. Hochman’s return to the stage for a Bach Sarabande demonstrated enlightening continuity with his approach to the Bartók, respecting the integrity of each individual tone and embracing the silences in between them.
The Boston Globe
Hochman played with a light touch and impressive textural clarity, delivering a fresh, inviting performance that was highlighted by a rapturous account of the Concerto’s transcendent second movement.
