Haydn: Sonata in C Major, Hob. XVI: 50
Debussy: Two Arabesques
Liszt: Sonata in B minor
Jenny Chen was accepted into the Curtis Institute at ten years old and by age 18 she had earned her Yale University Master’s degree. She is currently a doctoral candidate at the Eastman School of Music and is staff pianist at the Curtis Institute of Music. Ms. Chen has won numerous first prizes: the Kawai Piano Competion, the Baroque Competition, the Vienna National Piano Competition, and more. Among her many international awards, she has received top prizes at the New York International Piano Competition, the Eastman Piano Competition, and the Young Concert Artists’ International Auditions to name a few.
Ms. Chen made her debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age fourteen. She has also performed with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra, the National Repertory Orchestra, the New York Downtown Sinfonietta, the Pacific Symphony, and more with conductors such as Rossen Milanov, Carl Topilow, Stuart Malina, and Carl St. Clair. Despite all her successes, the energy and insight of her music has not lost the joy of youth, a contradictory mix where the rigors of virtuosity abet, rather than hinder, the spontaneity and freshness of her music.
