Review
L'ELISIR D'AMORE, Bielefeld 2016
Neue Westfälische
Lianghua Gong, der zunächst im Popgesang reüssierte, ist diese Paraderolle anvertraut; Harfe mit Fagott, weiteren Holzbläsern und Streichern am Schluss fassen das Juwel veredelnd ein. Der 34-Jährige hat Gold in der Kehle und ist dabei, sich zum Meister des lyrischen Gesangs zu entwickeln.
