In two weeks, on Monday evening, July 12, we have the opportunity to hear one of the two Gold Winners from last year’s Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, HAOCHEN ZHANG, from China. Zhang, the youngest participant in the competition at the age of 19, was previously recognized for his prodigious talent as the youngest winner of the 2007 China International Piano Competition when he was 17 years old. A sensitive musician and insightful programmer, Zhang gave his debut recital at the Shanghai Music Hall at the age of five, performing all of Bach’s two-part inventions, as well as sonatas by Haydn and Mozart! He performed with orchestra at age six, and moved to the United States at fifteen to attend the Curtis Institute of Music.

Haochem Zhang has selected a very interesting, but demanding program. To begin, he will perform all four of Chopin’s Ballades. Following intermission we will hear the four pieces, Op. 119 by Johannes Brahms and he will conclude with the Piano Sonata by Alberto Ginastera.
