04 May 2020

Ching-Yun Hu, Ji Liu, Natalia Kazaryan, Igor Levit and Eleonor Bindman all feature in this week's round-up.

Ching-Yun Hu

 

Ching-Yun Hu blessed our timelines with a selection of Chopin this past weekend. She has been performing live every week over on her Facebook page. Impromptu No. 1, Barcarolle, and Sonata No. 3 (Finale) were all on the menu.

 

On 9 May, she performs Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit. Make sure you tune in for what will be another glorious performance.

 

 

 

Ji Liu

 

Sit back and enjoy this wonderful set from Ji Liu. He plays a collection of minimalist music from Philip Glass, Ludovico Einaudi and Michael Nyman, as well as some of his own compositions.

Lucky for us, Ji Liu will be performing for the next few Saturdays over on his Instagram page.

 

 

 

Natalia Kazaryan

 

Natalia has been hosting regular performances on her Facebook page. The latest one features songs by Schubert transcribed for solo piano by Liszt and a recently commission piece by composer Alexandra Gardner.

 

Igor Levit

Igor has been gracing our Twitter timelines with daily performances for the last 52 days. It's some feat. 

This 52nd performance is his final one for a while, and he takes time to "pause" and "refill". What an honour it has been to enjoy his music every evening during these difficult times!

Igor featured on the cover of issue 112 of Pianist, which you can download here.

 

Eleonor Bindman

Eleonor performed a selection of Bach, Chopin and Scott Joplin live from Brooklyn, New York. What a gorgeous performance this was!
