Claire Huangci - Berlin

October 27, 2020 @ 20:00

Claire Huangci, who is one of the most sought-after young pianists today (FonoForum), will be performing in two important European concert halls in October: the Berlin Philharmonie and the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg. Her programs range from Bach and Schubert to the American composer John Corigliano.

Inspired by an irrepressible spirit of exploration, Claire Huangci devotes herself to an unusually broad repertoire in her artistic work. An American by birth and the daughter of two natural scientists, she has lived in Germany since her student days and has released seven highly successful CDs of Scarlatti, Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff and Paderewski. These have received awards including the German Record Critics' Prize and Gramophone Magazine's Editor's Choice.

She begins her concerts in Berlin and Hamburg with one of Bach's toccatas, which she recorded for the Berlin Classics label in September. Claire Huangci worked on the following Etude Fantasy by John Corigliano together with the composer. The programme culminates in the great Sonata in A major, D 959 by Franz Schubert, which he completed shortly before his death.

The jury of the Concours Géza Anda awarded the pianist first prize in 2018, explaining their decision as follows: " Claire Huangci, a former child prodigy who amazed the piano world with her extraordinary virtuosity at an early age, has grown into a mature artist. Her interpretation of works by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert impresses with its creativity and is fresh and convincing.
