Kate Liu, the 21-year-old American pianist who stormed the world by winning the bronze medal of the 17th International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw last fall, and the first American to have won any of the top three prizes in the Chopin International Competition in 20 years, will be soloing with the award-winning Bravura Philharmonic Orchestra.
Led by music director and conductor Chiu-Tze Lin, this concert marks the first performance Ms. Liu is making with an orchestra in the US since winning the International Chopin Competition. Ms. Liu will perform the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor.
The Bravura Philharmonic Orchestra will also perform The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten. It is an educational piece aimed to introduce the various orchestral instruments. The program includes the “Haffner Symphony,” a famous work that was written by Mozart for his patron and mayor of Salzburg, Sigmund Haffner.
