Pianist Wu Qian to give her Hong Kong debut soon

Wu Qian, who performed Mozart's "Piano Concerto K.449" at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London at the age of 15, will give her Hong Kong debut next month with works by Bach/Busoni, Chopin, Beethoven and Liszt.

British critics have hailed the young pianist, now 20, as a rising star. "Qian's performance transcended the work's extraordinary difficulties, illuminating the poetry of Carter's vision and laser-like clarity." -- The Guardian

At the age of nine, Wu Qian was one of six students chosen throughout China that year to study at the Shanghai Conservatoire, where, subsequently, she was heard by British Professor Malcolm Troupe who secured her a scholarship at the Menuhin School, England.

Wu is known for her ambitious performance in the Park Lane Group series, London, including Elliot Carter's "Night Fantasies", which drew enthusiastic reviews. She has subsequently performed in Wigmore Hall, London and in Germany, Holland and New York. Wu currently studies with Christopher Elton at the Royal Academy of Music, London.

Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, "Piano Recital by Wu Qian" will be staged at 8pm on December 22 (Wednesday) at the Theatre, Hong Kong City Hall. Tickets priced at $120 and $80 are now available at all URBTIX outlets. Half-price concessions will be granted to senior citizens, people with disabilities, full-time students and Comprehensive Social Security Assistance recipients.
