The Harvard Crimson :: Arts :: Brilliant, Aggressive Chang Performance Hindered by Uniform Approach (875 words)
Chang was one of the wunderkinds, of course--she made her New York debut with the New York Philharmonic at age 8 and is the youngest performer ever to receive the Avery Fisher Career Grant--but she grew out of her child prodigy title long before she stood on stage at Symphony Hall last Friday night.
Chang is no longer miraculous for her age for the same reason she's allowed to drive a car: simply, she's old enough to do it.
Chang did not play as if she loved the music: her movements, even her facial expressions, seemed too programmed and felt too forced--probably not because Chang is a universally negative performer, but because her style is not suited to Mozart.
