Bruce Liu plays Chopin
Oct. 4, 2023, 7:30 p.m.
Tonhalle am See
Frédéric Chopin: Klavierkonzert Nr. 1 e-Moll op. 11
Ludwig van Beethoven: Sinfonie Nr. 5 c-Moll op. 67
The Canadian-Chinese pianist Bruce Liu is 26 years young, and the fact that he is making his debut at the Tonhalle Zürich with Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 is no coincidence: on the one hand, he was born in Chopin's adopted home of Paris. And on the other hand, he won first prize at the 2021 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw with precisely this concerto. It had already been played eight times in the final of this important competition when it came to his turn and swept the undoubtedly already slightly tired audience off their feet with his presence and effervescence: Even before the final chord, the hall celebrated him with a standing ovation. The concert is combined with probably the most famous work in the entire history of music: namely – ta-ta-ta-taaa – Beethoven's Symphony No. 5.
