Tai­wanese con­cert pi­anist per­forms in United States

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Con­cert pi­anist Rueibin Chen (

), one of Tai­wan’s best-known mu­si­cal ex­ports, per­formed July 25 at the Or­ange County Sum­mer Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in the United States.

Chen was in­vited as guest pi­anist to per­form Beethoven’s Pi­ano Con­certo No. 5, “Em­peror” and Rim­sky-Kor­sakov’s “Scheherazade,” with the Or­ange County Pa­cific Sym­phony at Irvine Mead­ows Am­phithe­ater.

Mu­sic critic Ti­mothy Man­gan said in an ar­ti­cle pub­lished in The Or­ange County Register that “the outer move­ments were on the fast and for­ward side, though flex­i­ble as need be, with Chen dig­ging into phrases ro­bustly. To the slow move­ment he brought a lovely sense of the weight of each note, as if they were fat rain­drops fall­ing gen­tly in a pond.”
