Few openings in the piano concerto repertoire can equal the mounting tension
at the beginning of Rachmaninoff’s second piano concerto, a piece
that established the composer’s fame.
Since his gold medal win at the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition,
26-year-old Chinese pianist Haochen Zhang has captivated audiences in
the U.S., Europe and Asia with a unique combination of deep musical sensitivity,
fearless imagination and spectacular virtuosity.
“Such a combination of enchanting, sensitive lyricism and hypnotizing
forcefulness is a phenomenon encountered very rarely.” -- The Jerusalem Post
