      Ravel, arr Chen: La valse (13:21)

      Sean Chen, piano

      The years between 1900 and 1914, as historian Philipp Blom notes, were a “period of extraordinary creativity in the arts and sciences, of enormous change in society and in the very image people had of themselves.” The works by Ravel and Scriabin on this album, composed in that era, are emblematic of the creative ferment, poised between the ‘good old days’ and the rapid onslaught of modernity. Pianist Sean Chen has been hailed as a rising star with a “million-volt smile” and a “formidable set of fingers” (Dallas Morning News).
