About

The music of Ravel begins and ends this recital by Chun Wang, winner of the 59th Jaén International Piano Competition in 2017. The virtuoso magic of Jeux d’eau is balanced by the dazzling beauty and wit of the Concerto in G major. Two vividly contrasting examples have been selected from William Bolcom’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 12 New Etudes, whilst Bartók’s Out of Doors suite remains one of the 20th century’s most imaginative keyboard masterpieces. The mandatory work at the competition was Bonnín de Góngora’s Fantasía Jiennense, a vivacious piece based on folk songs from Jaén.
