“Paderewski & Chopin: Piano Concertos” – Claire Huangcis first orchestral album is here
After the release of the third movement of Paderewski's Piano Concerto the whole album is finally here: Pianist Claire Huangci presents her skills again on "Paderewski & Chopin: Piano Concertos".
Together with conductor Shiyeon Sung and the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken, the pianist has created an incredibly versatile album. One of the most famous works for solo piano and orchestra, the Piano Concerto No. 1 by Frédéric Chopin, meets a piano concerto by the rather unknown composer Ignacy Jan Paderewski. But this concerto is no less rich in ideas and power:
"Both composers exude a true joie de vivre, a love of life, attributable to their youth. The concertos were clearly written by men who looked with hope to the future." - Claire Huangci about her new album.
