Sherwood Auditorium | Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego
Haochen Zhang, the youngest winner of the China International Piano Competition, will be playing at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego for one day only.
Zhang will be performing pieces from beloved 19th and 20th century composers such as Liszt, Beethoven, and Balakirev on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 8:00PM at the Sherwood Auditorium at MCASD.
As a special prelude to the performance, Steven Cassedy, Professor of Literature and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at UCSD and a lecturer at the La Jolla Music Society, will be presenting a lecture titled, “Less is More? – The Art of the Short Composition,” which explores the difference between large-scale compositions to miniature-scale pieces.
Mr. Zhang is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia where he studied under Gary Graffman. He was previously trained at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and the Shenzhen Arts School, where he was admitted in 2001 at the age of 11 to study with Professor Dan Zhaoyi.
Since his gold medal win at the Thirteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009, 22-year-old Chinese pianist Haochen Zhang has captivated audiences in the US, Europe and Asia with a unique combination of deep musical sensitivity, fearless imagination and spectacular virtuosity.
