The young pianist Eriz Zuber is adding teaching to his performance career, appearing as a guest artist at festivals and schools. The New York Times critic Allan Kozinn gave a favorable review of his Carnegie Hall debut and he has garnered prizes in many competitions. In this program, he explores the genres of Chopin’s piano music, taking us from an etude through a nocturne and finally, a Scherzo. 

 

Sean Chen is also a multi-prize winning pianist who has performed with several orchestras. His interest in new music is apparent in collaborations with living composers and in this program he adventurously programs Carter and Dallapiccola before returning to some classic Liszt. When he is not playing the piano, he can be found “tinkering” with computers or composing.

Program:

Eric Zuber:

Chopin – Etude in C

Chopin – Nocturne in D-flat

Chopin – Scherzo in B-Flat   

Sean Chen:

Elliott Carter – Catenaires

Luigi Dallapiccola -  Sonatina Canonica (after Paganini)

Liszt –Transcendental Etude (after Paganini)
