Maksim In Hong Kong: Fans in Hong Kong would definitely be familiar with the name of Maksim, even just by saying ‘the Piano Player’. This is already his third stay in Hong Kong, but it’s just his first “in concert” performance. The main difference when comparing the other performances to this concert, is that he has a 6 piece orchestra, with a guitarist, an additional pianist, and a percussionist. So what you hear from those speakers in the Academy of Performing Arts, are what’s been played live.

Starting the set off with his ever-so-famous ‘Flight of the Bumble Bee’, showing off how fast his fingers can go on the keyboard, with the usual all black outfit and THE smile, Maksim has brought the cell-phone ringing crowd to silence, at least for the first few minutes. Capturing the audience with a string of collection from his debut album, he also threw in a surprise, a song that he has never played live before, ‘Ocean Dream’, the theme for this coming Olympic Games.

The whole performance was captivating, but maybe because that was the first show in Hong Kong, or maybe it’s because of my brain is still addicted to the songs with the dance beats instead of a snare drum, didn’t really feel right when the drums were covering the sound of everything else… Apart from this, it was quite a night.
