He is then joined by pianist Akira Eguchi in a French selection by Massenet, Debussy and Messiaen, and themes from Bizet's Carmen in a dazzling fantasy by Waxman with fireworks aplenty.Besides this recital, a week later, Zhu heads to the Esplanade Concert Hall as soloist in Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1, with the Orchestra of the Music Makers.
