The Cliburn’s 2013 third-prize winner returns for an intimate, engaging appearance, where he’ll perform his own transcriptions of famous pieces, as well as improvisations based on audience suggestions, and video game and Disney music.
Hailed as a charismatic rising star with “an exceptional ability to connect with an audience combined with an easy virtuosity” (Huffington Post), 29-year-old American pianist Sean Chen, also recipient of the DeHaan Classical Fellowship as the winner of the 2013 American Pianists Awards, has continued to earn accolades for “alluring, colorfully shaded renditions” (New York Times) and “genuinely sensitive” (Los Angeles) playing. Sean was recently named a 2015 fellow by the prestigious Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund for the Performing Arts.
