Liszt, Franz - Liszt Transfigured - Operatic Fantasies for Piano - Wong, Chiyan

Lägg till önskelista + 189 kr - Ej i lager

The hugely talented pianist makes his recording debut with the phenomenally difficult Liszt transcriptions of well-known opera melodies. A broad and thoughtful musician, Chiyan Wong’s special interest in the music of Franz Liszt, has led to him perfecting his own editions of these popular operatic fantasies. Following Liszt’s own advice regarding transcriptions, Wong concentrates on communicating the spirit and intention of the music whilst applying his own personal touches. A decade of performing Réminiscences de ‘Don Juan’ de Mozart has created a most effective version, whilst Wong adds a new coda to Fantasie über Themen aus Mozarts Figaro und Don Giovanni in a fitting tribute to Liszt’s pupil Carl Tausig. Wong has performed Liszt around the world: in Hong Kong as part of the composer’s bicentenary celebrations, in London at his Wigmore Hall debut, and in concert for the Liszt Society in Europe. Chiyan Wong has been astonishing audiences with not just the sincerity and sheer authority of his playing, but is also fêted by critics and colleagues as a rising star of the piano world. Wong was the sole recipient of the Bernard van Zuiden Music Fund of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra in 2007 and won First Prize at the Jaques Samuel Pianos Intercollegiate Piano Competition in 2011. In addition, he has been awarded prizes by the Hattori Foundation in London, the International Piano Competition in Memory of Vladimir Horowitz in Ukraine and the Premio Liszt in Parma. He is a recipient of the Postgraduate Performance Award by the Musicians Benevolent Fund and the ABRSM Macklin Bursary. Wong has performed in Singapore, Italy, France, Germany and the UK and will return to the Singapore International Piano Festival in 2017.
