      Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 29 in B-flat major, Op 106, Hammerklavier: IV, Largo-Allegro risoluto (12:05)

      Sean Chen, piano

      Sean Chen captivated audiences and critics at the 2013 Cliburn Competition with concerts “that had the crowd not just standing…but cheering loudly,” (KDHX, St. Louis) earning the crystal award and winning three years of concert tours in the United States—the first American to win a prize since 1997. In his final round performance of Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No 3, “he summoned massive, orchestral sonorities, yet he could also play with enormous delicacy. It was a muscular, impassioned performance, and you felt like he is an artist with something to say” (Cincinnati Enquirer).
