Pianist Bruce Liu plays Rameau, Chopin, Liszt and Ravel
The young Canadian pianist Bruce Liu has magic as a hobby, and prefers to play the piano that way. Tonight he presents a sample of musical styles, from the baroque of Rameau via the romanticism of Liszt and Chopin to the twentieth century of Ravel. Come listen in the Recital Hall of the Royal Concertgebouw.
The career of Canadian pianist Bruce Liu took off after he won the eighteenth edition of the Chopin Competition in Warsaw in 2021. Just before that, he was backstage doing some magic tricks for his fellow candidates. Magic is a hobby, just like racing and swimming. Liu prefers to play the piano that way, to avoid routine and stay inspired.
From Rameau to Ravel
Bruce Liu has prepared a recital with an original program for you. Liu gives the floor to composers for whom the keyboard instrument was an essential means of expression, and he prefers to choose works from them that avoid the familiar paths. The sample of styles – the late Baroque, Romanticism and the twentieth century are discussed – reflects the versatility of the young Canadian.
