Sean Chen with WFMT's Candice Agree

La valse on Steinway & SonsOver the last year, WFMT has been getting to know a young pianist by the name of Sean Chen. Chen won the bronze medal at the Van Cliburn Competition and the top prize at a competition sponsored by the American Pianists Association. The finals of the APA was broadcast on WFMT, as was Chen’s recital on the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts series. Chen has just issued a CD on the Steinway & Sons label which is featured on this week’s edition of The New Releases with Lisa Flynn.

Sean Chen was born in Florida and grew up in southern California. La valse is named for the track containing his own arrangement of Ravel’s ballet of the same name. La valse is the 25-year-old pianist’s third CD.
