Bruce Liu — Pianist

Program notes

If you didn't see the flabbergastingly talented Bruce Liu's convincing run to the biggest prize at the International Chopin Piano Competition in 2021—or if you did—you're in for a treat as the Canadian virtuoso performs an all-Chopin program at the gorgeous salon named for the Polish composer in Paris's Place Vendôme, where Chopin spent his final hours. Liu takes on a little-heard sparkling Rondo in F, the stormy Ballade No. 2 and triumphant Ballade No. 3, the gravity-defying variations on Mozart's "Là ci darem la mano," the haunting and spectral posthumous Nocturne in C-sharp Minor, the dazzling and irresistible "Black Key" Etude Op. 10, No. 5, and—for a surprise finale—La Campanella, one of the most devilishly demanding etudes by Chopin's colleague and rival, Franz Liszt. Hold on to your hats…
