The Story Behind Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata: Henle's New Edition by Murray Perahia and Norbert Gertsch

January 29, 2020

In March, I will be presenting a showcase at the Music Teachers National Association Conference in Chicago on Henle's new edition of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas, edited by renowned pianist, Murray Perahia, and Norbert Gertsch. To me, this is a wonderful resource for aspiring pianists to gain access to the minds of one of the most perceptive and sensitive artists of our era. In this edition, Perahia and Henle partner together to produce an excellent blend between performance and historical scholarship by carefully examining and staying as faithful as possible to the composer's autograph and manuscripts. Additionally, Perahia often provides his own performance remarks, theoretical analysis, and historical research––all resulting to a completely unique and cerebral approach to the Beethoven Sonatas.

Exploring the "hero" element in Beethoven's Eroica Variations

December 01, 2019

In 2020, the world will celebrate the 250th birth year of one of the greatest classical music composers: Ludwig van Beethoven. I will take part of the festivities and perform one of his most iconic piano masterpieces, Variations and Fugue in E flat Major, Op. 35, "Eroica," or most commonly known as "Eroica Variations." To me, this great work embodies Beethoven's sense of patriotism, political ideology, and above all, his fascination and self-portrayal of the hero–-a warrior that defies all odds to overcome a certain challenge or obstacle. Certainly, this type of "underdog" mentality and to never give up on something are great lessons that we can learn from these pieces.

Performing in Paris: an experience to remember

October 16, 2019

Performing in Paris has always been a “bucket-list” destination of mine because of the city’s long history and appreciation for art and culture. It was such a surreal experience! I performed a mix of old and new repertory in my fingers: Schubert Klavierstücke in E flat minor, D. 946, Medtner Sonata Triad, Op. 11, Medtner Fairy Tales, Op. 26, selections from Messiaen’s Vingt Regards, and Rzewski’s Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues.
